Brindley House Birmingham : Completed
Brindley House, located on Newhall Street in Birmingham, is the conversion of a 1970’s ex-telecommunications block – into 182 luxury apartments rising to 17 floors, the top two of which MCD are adding for spectacular penthouse views.
Located next to the BT tower, Brindley House is built literally on stilts over the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal. The £35 million scheme created a new gateway to the Jewellery Quarter and St Paul’s Square, opening up the towpath that runs underneath and restoring the canal to its former glory.
As well as producing stylish living spaces, the development benefits from a stunning entrance foyer offering concierge facilities, coffee shop and convenience store.
The façade of the building has been completely re-rendered with new windows and the help of renowned lighting specialist Piero De Marchis, at night it is bathed in eye catching lighting effects creating a landmark building on the city skyline.
The biggest challenge was to design apartment layouts in a shell that contained split levels – meaning 15 floors on one side and 10 on the other. After much planning, MCD executive team embraced this feature and created split level apartments which incorporate interesting features such as sunken baths and high ceilings.
Completed in 2008
