We would like to reassure our clients and collaborators that it is business (almost) as usual and to contact us if you have any queries. David has written weekly updates for the Architect's Journal which can be viewed on its website

Jan 2020Birmingham Smithfield Market Competition

We are delighted to announce that we are the winners of an international competition to design a new home for the historic Smithfield Markets in the heart of Birmingham. Our team includes Birmingham-based artist multiverse, Eastside Projects alongside, Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, Mark El-khatib, Charcoalblue, Price & Myers, WSP, Urban Space Management, Plan A Consultants and Max Fordham.

Smithfield has been the productive centre of markets and makers since the foundation of Birmingham and integral to its success as the ‘City of a Thousand Trades’. The new markets will be the centrepiece of the £1.5 billion Smithfield development which will deliver significant cultural and family leisure opportunities, a new public square, integrated public transport and more than 2,000 homes surrounding a public park.

We are looking forward to working with Lendlease, Birmingham City Council, local businesses and the wider community on such an important project for the city.

See The Architects’ Journal’s exclusive for more information.
