Base2stay Liverpool-A Real Heritage Success for Seel Street Liverpool.
Why does it always have to be Iconic ( and usually end up Ichronic) when you can be confident and bold in a unassuming manner that is both pleasing and cares for the historic fabric of a building.
I spoke to Robert Nadier the Chief Executive of Base2stay and thanked him for coming to my city and restoring one of our old buildings that was languishing in decay. He, had thanked, in his opening speech, Peter Hooey from the council and The Mersey Partnership for the involvement and Liverpool Vision, of which all the usual suspects who would go to the opening of a envelope, turned up. He said that he was advised to keep the old beams by the conservation team, and they have been used as features that make a perfectly stirred blend with old and new, exactly what people want. They are about to roll out the concept further afield after the Liverpool and Kensington hotels are now open.
