With the perfect combination of contextual modern architecture and stunning interiors, these new build apartments are being constructed to the highest specification and draw on the area’s unique sense of history. Building works started on site in March 2015 and are due to complete midway through 2016, following the Grant of Planning Permission in September 2013 (initial scheme by others). DMS Architecture were appointed by a contractor client in January 2015 to deliver the 61 luxury apartments under a Design & Build contract. Being situated in the heart of a Conservation Area, negotiating closely with the planning department has been essential to enable the delivery of a cost-effective build whilst maintaining the aesthetic requirements dictated by its locale.
61 LUXURY APARTMENTS
The site is nestled between neighbouring properties on three sides, creating a complex challenge for the design and construction teams. The site is within Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, which dates back more than 250 years and is still home to over 500 jewellery businesses. The proposed design complements the surrounding architecture and comprises a four storey building organised around two courtyards.
