The Challenge

-       This brownfield development within the heart of Birmingham required a radical approach to overcome known noise constraints from the adjacent employment zone.
-       The client required a minimum of 200 residential dwellings, as well as the communal facilities the market has become accustomed to.
-       Designing for the rental market of tomorrow.

Our Solution

-       Developing a site-specific solution to ensure all bedroom windows are openable. The design solution created dual aspect apartments with usable decking access promoting communal interactions.  
-       Achieving 203 dwellings, with high-quality communal facilities, retail stores, cycle and car parking.
-       The development encourages green technology and innovation, going beyond the statutory to provide a high proportion of car parking spaces with electric charging, solar energy creation, green roofs, and dynamic communal spaces to promote interaction between the community.
-       A communal rooftop space will provide views of the ever-changing city skyline.

The Results

-       The new residential development of 203 dwellings will put community and sustainability at the heart of the urban area. Promoting green technology and enhancing social interactions, the development will establish a residential community which will add to the city centres vibrancy.
