HEMISPHERE, our sustainability-led, Grade A office building which puts the health of its workforce first, has been unveiled at MIPIM by Sciontec.

Located on Paddington Village in the heart of the growing Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) Innovation District, HEMISPHERE is set to become one of first new builds in the UK designed to achieve six global sustainability accreditations.

HEMISPHERE will be the first new build office development in the Liverpool City Region designed to be operational net zero carbon, achieving 55kwh/m2 per year, embodying 30% less carbon than a typical office building, 30% less energy consumption, 40% less glazing and 20% more natural ventilation.”

Inspired by the changing needs of a growing workforce, HEMISPHERE focusses on what the future workplace will look and feel like.

One of the project’s key aspirations is to create a place for a happier and healthier workforce which will encourage greater creativity and productivity through its smart design features.

It will include:

  • Collaboration spaces
  • A wellness studio
  • Cafe
  • Innovation lab
  • Outdoor workspace
  • Multi-purpose event space
  • Public realm

With biophilic interventions used throughout, the workplace will prioritise health, social and cultural wellbeing. HEMISPHERE’s unique design and position at the gateway to the city will make the building a place that people will want to visit, whilst showcasing the very best of health, life sciences and technology in the region.

HEMISPHERE complements our growing portfolio of sustainability driven buildings which includes its iconic neighbour, The Spine.
