About the project

“Very clever design to allow space despite the density of buildings”

The Gables is an RIBA National award winning development of 30 new family houses for Musker Developments located on a redundant former factory site located in a primarily residential area in Crosby, Liverpool. The scheme combines affordable and open market homes in a mix of two, three and four bedroom units.

The locally based developer was keen for the new houses to distinguish themselves from the neighbouring volume housebuilder development, and so the overarching aim of the project was to develop a more creative and characterful development with a strong architectural identity, all whilst ensuring commercial sustainability.
