Strzala Architects as lead consultant and architects worked closely with the design team on the refurbishment of a neglected listed station building for Lancashire County Council and Merseytravel.
Externally the scheme consists of brickwork and stonework repairs, re-instatement of original features, platform canopy works and a new entrance canopy. Internal refurbishment includes a new contemporary waiting room and booking hall, new ticket office and staff areas along with a commercial office suite.
The design team has worked closely with the client body, Network Rail, the Railway Heritage Trust and local Conservation officer to produce a scheme that demonstrates a contemporary intervention within a sensitive listed building, bringing the station’s functionality in line with current best practice and design.
