Paradise Street Bridge

The Paradise Street Development Area – Liverpool One – in Liverpool forms a key part of the city’s recent regeneration. The new developments have created an enhanced public realm and a series of exciting new leisure, retail and interchange facilities, providing improved clarity in pedestrian and transport links between the city centre and the new Arena and Convention Centre at King’s Waterfront – also designed by Wilkinson Eyre.

This pedestrian bridge is Wilkinson Eyre’s final project in the Paradise Street development, and links the practice’s car park with a major department store building. It provides an enclosed link for pedestrians between the two, offering a dramatic and contemporary entrance experience for shoppers.

The Paradise Street bridge is constructed from fabricated steel plate and is extensively glazed, the materials emphasising its unique ‘folded’ geometric form. Careful lighting design also enhances the geometry, the bridge appearing to glow by night. With a span of around 60m, the bridge has one of the largest spans for a crossing of its type in the world.
