    Oriel Chambers, 14 Water Street.
    Peter Ellis 1864

    Oriel Chambers was built in 1864, it is one of Liverpool's architectural treasures. The building was far ahead of its time and a precursor by 20 years of the frame- and curtain-wall buildings of Chicago and New York. Built to the designs of Liverpool architect Peter Ellis (1808-88), it stands on the corner of Water Street and Covent Garden. Ellis also designed another building located at 16 Cook street, the Cook Street building dates from 1866. It seems that Peter Ellis won the commission for the first building (Oriel Chambers) as a result of a competition between local architects organized by the developer.
