Win a framed Liverpool Icon picture by local artist Sophie Green

Tobacco Warehouse has got an exhibition devoted to some of Liverpool’s most amazing landmarks.

And two lucky Guide readers could each win one framed print of their choice!

Tobacco Warehouse
Art By Sophie Green

Tobacco Warehouse is the latest star of Sophie’s ‘Liverpool Icons’ collection of posters and greetings cards which already features some of the city’s most famous places, like the Liver Building, Liverpool Town Hall, Sefton Park, and Bluecoat Chambers.

The former industrial waterfront building, the largest brick-built warehouse in the world,  has been fabulously refurbished, retaining many of the original features in the duplex apartments. One of Liverpool’s most ambitious restoration and residential conversion projects it is the perfect addition to Sophie’s Icons work, which has been hailed as a ‘love letter to the city’.

And it’s the ideal place in which to show it – and the others – too!

The exhibition space has been created within the £310,000 two-bedroom, two-bathroom show home which looks out onto the historic Stanley Dock.

Tobacco Warehouse

Set over the first and second floors of the 14-storey Tobacco Warehouse the duplex apartment has held on to a host of original Victorian features, while being given an amazing interior design scheme by LOFT.

Tobacco Warehouse was originally added to the Liverpool Icons series around 18 months ago when Sophie was commissioned to celebrate Stanley Dock’s unique defining features, including the new penthouses subtly added to the Victorian warehouse for a show-stopping image on a postcard for use exclusively by guests of Titanic Hotel across the water.

The illustration inspired special limited-edition Christmas cards for homeowners at Tobacco Warehouse and, now, blown up and framed in black, the giclee-print image is displayed to dramatic effect in the new show apartment – along with the other artworks in the spectacular series.

Sophie Green

Sophie, who moved from the East Midland to Merseyside, says:

“Having added Tobacco Warehouse to my series of ‘Liverpool Icons’ celebrating the city’s unique architecture in 2022, it is great to see the image blown up to A0 size and displayed in situ, in all its colour-popping glory. 

“It looks fantastic in the apartment exhibited with the rest of the series, and I have had a great response from Tobacco Warehouse residents who have bought prints to hang in their own homes.

“I am so inspired by the communities in Liverpool, and love to explore the city and its fascinating architecture. I am always on the lookout for the next subject in the series.”

Tobacco Warehouse

Pat Power, director of Stanley Dock Properties, adds:

“Tobacco Warehouse is at the heart of Liverpool’s cultural and artistic life, serving last year as the main hub to the Liverpool Biennial festival, so exhibiting Sophie Green’s inspirational ‘Liverpool Icons’ series, with Tobacco Warehouse displayed on large scale, is a fantastic way to build on the site’s artistic legacy as well as celebrate the city’s incredible architecture.”
