Bluecoat seeks Architect-led Design Team services 

Bluecoat, Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts, has secured capital funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Arts Council England (ACE) to develop the ground floor public area of the building (known as the Hub). The project will transform our public areas, enabling us to better reflect our vision, mission and values.

We are seeking imaginative design approaches and solutions to support us in delivering a warm and welcoming environment. The Hub is key as it is the connection between our organisation and the diverse variety of people who use our building. We are seeking an Architect-led Design Team to undertake project delivery up to completion. This a unique and exciting opportunity to be involved in the development of a Liverpool institution.
