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.

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.
