Conservation Development in Grade 1 listed Park

Every so often at Bryson Architecture we get the privilege of working on a unique scheme that not only sees a local area being regenerated, bringing communities into the future, whilst also enabling the salvaging and rebuilding of a place of local historical interest.

Our plans for the ESWA development on the outskirts of the historic Birkenhead Park have now been submitted, which would be exciting enough in terms of design, but the project has a double wow factor as it incorporates the renovation of the family home of local Everest pioneer, Andrew ‘Sandy’ Irvine.

Irvine was part of the ill fated third British Everest attempt in 1924 with George Mallory, and sadly, his body was never recovered, despite being sighted only metres from the summit in what was the first ever Everest ascent.

You can learn more about the life of Sandy Irvine here:

Projects such as this enable the developer to link the past with the future, and are an architect’s dream.  We’re certainly proud of this addition to our regeneration portfolio and look forward to seeing the scheme on completion.


If you would like to discuss a renovation project that you have in mind, or indeed any other project requiring the Bryson service, please contact the studio on 0151 647 0371 or email
