A striking business community
This multi award-winning scheme offers some of the best designed workspace in South Liverpool; versatility in its offering means it's home to all kinds of businesses - big and small. Matchworks will get a facelift in 2018, with plans for a new cafe, common area and outdoor spaces coming soon.
Matchworks is a combination of two architectural gems; the first - developed in 2001 was the site's former match factory with its iconic water tower, and the second - Matchworks II - a former storage building. These art deco structures were converted to create 166,000 sq ft of well designed, dynamic workspace. The lower ground level of the former storage warehouse has also been converted to provide a variety of workshop, studio or light industrial space.
The creation of the Matchworks buildings, the Matchbox structure at the front of the scheme, and the refurbishment of Mersey House - which brought smaller, start-up spaces to the Estate - mean that the area is now well established as a contemporary, commercial space.
Located on South Liverpool's busy Speke Road, just 15 minutes south of the city and two miles from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, it's a brilliant place to do business. The Merseytravel Liverpool South Parkway Interchange provides an integrated link between the area and the national and local rail network, while across the road is the New Mersey Retail Park, one of the best performing out of town retail parks in the country. Some final spaces remain on the site and they could be yours tomorrow thanks to our short form lease option - just four-pages of jargon-free text that cuts out the costs and commitment of a standard lease.

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.
