This was a skilful and highly successful conversion of a disused mid-18th Century church – St Peter’s, the oldest Catholic church in Liverpool – into a popular bar and restaurant in Liverpool city centre.
The conversion included:
The design looked to transform the vast triple height space into a bar and restaurant and the amazing building allows for a host of unique spaces, with small intimate booths, rooms and original alter on the lower level to two large mezzanine restaurant areas above.
The new structure both respects and contrasts with the original internal church features and décor which were retained and restored making a visit to the bar/restaurant an unforgettable experience.
The project made an instant impression in the city when it was opened in 2005 and was featured as one of four images selected for a poster campaign to advertise Liverpool 2008 European Capital of Culture.
