Following the success of East Parade in Leeds, AHQ appointed Cunniff Design to assist in planning space at a new opportunity in Liverpool. Working within the constraints of the existing building, Cunniff Design were able to design a flexible layout providing a range of accommodation, including cellular offices, open plan co-working spaces and a café/bar; St Paul's Social. This now adds a third property to the growing portfolio for Avenue HQ and their customers.


Working within an existing building might have presented a problem but this new Grade A office building was designed to BCO standards, so producing a flexible layout was relatively straight forward. We had to ensure that whilst maximising the occupancy, we respected the limitations of the fire design capacity.

The Social

The ground floor ‘Social’ has become a key feature of all AHQs properties, providing a café/bar where members can meet, work and do business, but also where members of the public can use an independent leisure destination during the day and in the evenings.
