Cullinan beats big names to Alder Hey job

Winning Alder Hey proposal by Cullinan__Workspace

Reiach & Hall, Penoyre & Prasad and AHMM lose out

Cullinan Studio has beaten AHMM, Penoyre & Prasad and Reiach & Hall in a competition to design a community building at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

The evaluation panel, which included Jim Chapman as the architect adviser, said it was impressed by the very different ways in which the shortlisted teams responded to the brief and in the way they developed their proposals in response to feedback from patients and their families.

The two-stage process, run by RIBA Competitions, sought a multi-disciplinary team to design a building that will accommodate a wide range of services that are expected to include outpatient clinics, inpatient wards, operational support, administration and education, together with a small community office for Merseyside Police.
