Who was the architect of the Bluecoat?

Who was the architect of the Bluecoat?

The Bluecoat is the oldest building in central Liverpool, dating from 1717. Now Britain’s oldest arts centre, it began life as a charity school, built in the Queen Anne style. The award-winning refurbishment of this Grade One listed building for Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture in 2008 was by Rotterdam-based practice, Biq Architecten. But who was the architect of the original early 18th century building?
