Feb 2024Markets into Planning

'An important step forward in Birmingham's transformation as an international city', says Project Lead Colin Murphy of Lendlease about Birmingham Smithfield, which has now been resubmitted for planning. The new market halls designed in collaboration with Eastside Projects is the centrepiece of a £1.9 billion mixed use quarter commissioned by Birmingham Council. Conceived as a city in miniature, the market building rehouses the food market which has existed at Smithfield for over 800 years and includes a dining hall, restaurant, and event spaces. Find out more about the scheme at The Architects' Journal website.

Nov 2023Manser Medal 2023

We are delighted to be the recipient of the 2023 Manser Medal, the Architects' Journal's House of the Year Award. The practice worked with the clients Suzanne and Peter Redstone over 12 years to convert five buildings on their farm in Devon into residential use. The last, Cowshed, repurposed a 50 year old agricultural barn as a home, artist's studio and office. The award judges reflected, ‘an exemplar of the best of retrofit,’ ‘brilliant not just as a reuse project but as a regeneration of a site. It’s so interwoven and integrated with the context,’ ‘sustainability at a whole different level.' Read more on the Architects' Journal's website here.
