The visuals below form part of our latest project exploring the creation of a landmark new music and cultural venue for the Liverpool City Region at Birkenhead. A Royal Opera House for the North of England would be cited close to the current twelve quays terminal and proposed Wirral Waters development with a short walk to Hamilton Square underground station and a 5 minute tube ride to central Liverpool.
The new venue would create a new architectural focal point for the Birkenhead skyline set against the backdrop of the Liverpool skyline across the river Mersey.
The visuals below also form part of a conceptual cross-river city district encompassing both Liverpool and Birkenhead central as Zone 1 of the wider Liverpool City Region.
A development such the Royal Opera House North could help underpin the importance of expanding the centre of the Liverpool City Region and encouraging development on both sides of the River Mersey.
