The Granby Winter Garden
Granby Winter Garden is a community-owned creative space and indoor garden in the heart of Toxteth, Liverpool 8. Recently opened to the public, it is a beautiful, fully liveable space, designed to be flexible, sociable and sustainable in every sense, and accessible to the whole community.
From the outside, you'd never guess the green oasis that resides inside...
A Community Creation
The Winter Garden is an innovative combination of design, gardening and community-led activity. We used two adjoining terrace houses, to create a space which can be used for workshops, events, artists' residencies and social gatherings as well as a shared space for gardening.
The building and garden were designed in collaboration with local residents, the building with multi-disciplinary collective Assemble and the garden design led by gardener-in-residence, Andrea Ku.
The garden reaches up to the full height of the building, with a glazed roof allowing large-scale indoor planting. It is tall enough for full-height trees to grow, together with climbers and large potted plants - plants of all sizes are welcome here.
