Institute in the Park wins prestigious architectural award

13th May 2019

Alder Hey's Institute in the Park has won an award for its quirky and unique design.

First opened in 2016, in partnership with the University of Liverpool, the building plays host to dedicated research, education and innovation in children and young people's healthcare and treatment. It was made possible with the support of the Alder Hey Children's Charity.

As well as making changes in the way children are treated and cared for, the exterior of the building has also gained a lot of attention thanks to its wood panelling, and combination of traditional and modern decor.

The building, which is just one of a range of new, innovative facilities that will form the Alder Hey Campus, has now also been named as one of the North West's best new buildings by the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Being recognised for its architectural excellence, the building, which was designed by Hopkins Architects, was named among five other buildings in the region.

Speaking about the buildings named in the awards, North West Regional Jury Chair, Suzi Winstanley, said: “Bravery is a big theme for the North West this year.

"Every project is unique, contextually aware of its surroundings and has environmental strategies that are integrated from inception.”
