Cotton Exchange Reception


New roof terrace: Grade II Listed Cotton Exchange building, Liverpool.


The project seeks to reconfigure the existing reception area at the Cotton Exchange in order to provide flexible meeting and working facilities.
Cotton Exchange Building is a Grade II Listed structure characterised by a complexity born of substantial modification. It is best surmised as a complex of structures, comprising the original 1906 building, through to the replacement block fronting Old Hall Street. The surviving 1906 structure is of exemplary quality, featuring innovative construction techniques such as cast iron modular facades, contrasting with the Portland stone elevation to Bixteth Street. The front portion of the building, an elaborate classical facade with towers facing Old Hall Street, was replaced by an office building in the 1960s.
