Archbishop Blanch

Students from Archbishop Blanch School in Liverpool have been working with Liverpool architects ABW Architects. They are developing design ideas for the Wellington Rooms, known locally as the Irish Centre on Mount Pleasant. The building is very close to the school, giving pupils a good understanding of its context and helping them to develop design ideas that work in the cultural and educational area in which the building is located. 

Students have taken part in workshops that have included a site visit, design workshops, presentation skills sessions and model making.

    The group have been using trace in order to firm up their plans. They have worked hard to strengthen their business plans and they are now down to the ‘nitty-gritty’ of who goes where.

    They plan on bringing DotArt and LEAF to together. This decision is supported by LEAF wanting a cafe with a unique and interesting dining experience and DotArt wanting a cafe to draw people in - so having consulted their briefs, this seems like a great idea.
