ProjectLiverpool Housing Action Trust & The Guinness Trust
In the green tree lined suburbs of south Liverpool, the site of Links View was formerly occupied by a tower block. Rather than dominate the site, the new building fits around existing trees and creates a series of spaces, one forming an entrance court that is overlooked by the main entrance and the community lounge, a second space at the rear of the building has been made into a communal garden accessible from the shared dining area.
The scheme is part of a much larger site of refurbished blocks, and the facilities at Links View such as the hall with its community activities, the dining facilities, hairdressing etc are designed to be accessible to the wider community.
The shared facilities and staff areas have been planned as a hub around the entrance to facilitate social activity and become a place to meet. Links View has approximately 50 one and two bed flats with separate visitor accommodation.
