Liverpool architect bags top award for Calder House

Falconer Chester Hall (FCH) is celebrating after winning Residential Development of the year at the 15th annual Northern Design Awards held in Manchester.

The Liverpool-based architect was honoured for Calder House – a unique development of 11 apartments overlooking Calderstones Park.

The £3 million design project for developers Scheme Global was created on an overgrown brownfield plot on the corner of Cromptons Lane.

The project includes 11 apartments set over three floors in a building with allocated parking in the semi-basement below and private gardens or terraces to each apartment.

Due to the development’s location near Calderstones Park, each step of the building process was monitored by Liverpool City Council’s planning department.

Over 200 companies entered the Northern Design Awards which were judged by leading industry professionals such as Linda Barker, Wayne Hemingway, Susie Rumbold of BIID, Gabby Deeming, editor of House & Garden Magazine, and Ewen Millar, regional chair of RIBA.

The prestigious award was announced during a glittering ceremony at the Principal Hotel, Manchester last week, during which guests were wined, dined and entertained until the early hours.

Adam Hall, managing director at FCH, says: “It was a very proud moment for us to be announced as the winner of this award and we were truly honoured to be acknowledged for the quality of our work on the project.”
