Greenfields Place comprised the refurbishment and extension of 4 high-rise blocks close to Bootle Town Centre in Sefton. One Vision Housing have invested approximately £17m to provide first class living accommodation combined with open, desirable community space, a cleaner, safer, greener environment, preserving a strong sense of community.
The communal and entrance areas are improved to give a welcoming and secure environment with a GDX entry system. The areas around the blocks will be transformed into a landscaped garden to create a visually rich sensory experience and integrate the building and the landscape. The garden will be for residents to use and provides secure parking while connecting the blocks to the surrounding area with a network of well-lit paths and seating areas.
The design strives to give a sense of place and identity to the area, while at the same time giving the residents of the blocks a more sustainable and efficient environment in which to live. The roof top extensions form a major focal point, visible from major routes. They have been designed as a contemporary addition to the blocks.
