A striking and versatile cube
Our award winning Matchbox is the first thing you'll see on entering our Matchworks estate in South Liverpool. The fully glazed, three storey building is currently home to 24/7 Fitness gym.
Designed by award-winning architects shedkm, Matchbox was the final building to be created at our Matchworks estate - a business park which was formerly home to the Bryant and May match factory. We refurbished the site's original art deco structures, adding new elements to create an awesome, contemporary, commercial estate on South Liverpool's busy Speke Road, just 15 minutes south of the city and just two miles from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
The building was originally created as Grade A office space, but versatility in the floorplates means that since its completion, has been let to fitness operators, which gives our Matchworks tenants - and other people living and working in this area of Merseyside - a great amenity. The Matchbox is currently let to 24/7 Fitness, but some other space is available around the Matchworks Estate.
Meet the designer
shedkm work in a first floor studio in Bold Street, Liverpool - above Rennie's Art Shop. The space is open, informal and busy. We all sit at refectory tables with IT equipment in a central pod. Visitors are welcome, indeed encouraged, to look around. We like to think of our studio as a living advertisement for our skills and professionalism.
To date we have won 400 awards for architecture, regeneration, marketing and enterprise.
