The Weedon office in Newhall Street, within the Jewellry Quarter Conservation area of Birmingham adapted the existing warehouse/office buildings into a contemporary architects studio.
The adaptive construction commenced on site and was completed on time within a 6 month period
The previously rundown 1980s sales office and warehouse is now an exciting, accessible, contemporary workplace. A mixture of single and double-height spaces encourage collaborative working. Green credentials include: A biodiverse Green Roof reducing surface water run-off: LED lighting with absence / presence detection: High thermal mass; Increased insulation: Zoned underfloor heating.
The project has been awarded a prestigious British Council for Office Award for the best refurbished / recycled workplace in the Midlands and East Anglia region.
This is a first class example of how to recycle a rundown building into a contemporary and functional office environment. The new light and airy workplace incorporates all modern day office facilities and has rejuvenated working practices
