LIV is situated in Radiant House, the former home of The Liverpool Gas Company and a building that quite literally lit up Liverpool.
You'll find LIV on Bold Street, a street packed with independent businesses, where cultural modernity meets tangible history. Our home, Radiant House, was once the home of The Liverpool Gas Company, a business that was at the forefront of modern ingenuity during the post-war era.
The impressive, art-deco building dominates the street and even back in it's Liverpool Gas Company days it was a community hub. With several showrooms and a lecture theatre it welcomed shoppers and school children to witness the latest in gas manufacturing. It also offered its many staff a great workplace, with roof gardens, tea-rooms and dining suites. The staff kitchen, fitted with all of the company's most cutting edge appliances, was accessible to the public.
Radiant House was at the centre of pioneering innovation in Liverpool, well ahead of its time in engineering, employee welfare and customer experience. That's a legacy that we strive to live up to.
'The past has gone, the future is before us with all its immense possibilities; and so we close the door on the past and enter a new era.' Sir Christopher Clayton, chairman of The Liverpool Gas Company
