The Florrie

The Florence Institute. This is a stunning building grade II listed building in Toxteth. The Florrie used to be a community centre which opened in 1889 and for 90 years it served the community. Unfortunately due to an arson it closed. Thankfully it has been restored and is due to open in the next few weeks. I had a tour and it’s a gorgeous building.

I’m a strong believer that architecture should inspire and make people feel good. This is a simple community centre. What a gift to the community. It’s not a 1970’s box. It’s a beautiful building that the people of Toxteth should be proud to care for.
