We attended the opening of the Almshouses in Little Gransden.
The Almshouses owned by the Julia Norris Almshouse Trust, were constructed in 1902. BM3 was instructed to repair and refurbish these for elderly persons. With the proposals each flat gained 6 square metres of additional space. This represents a 15% increase in size, something that significantly improved the quality and sustainability of the dwellings.
We hosted RIBA Building Brum: Digbeth in Colour in our open air courtyard, located in Digbeth. The event was the fourth in the #buildingbrum series, a programme of cross-disciplinary events set to run throughout 2017 looking at different aspects of Birmingham's built environment.
The BM3 Team wanted to celebrate Digbeth and showcase using colour how it is only set to grow in coming years into an alternative hub of sustainable and creative energy. Guests took part in the 'colour a canvas' outlining a Digbeth landmark and were able to try their hand at graffiting the Birmingham skyline.
There was over 100 people joining us and we were very excited by people’s participation on the night. The events are a collaboration between the RIBA, ICE, RICS, RTPI, BIID, SBID, Landscape institute and CIOB sponsored by EH Smith, Interface, Johnson Tiles and Orangebox.
Quote: RIBA Project Manager and Building Brum Organiser Conor Nolan:
''It was great to see everyone who came to Digbeth let their creative side out and get stuck into the grafting and painting. The Building Brum series is all about celebrating Birmingham in creative and unique ways and BM3 Architecture really tapped into the built environment community’s artistic side to paint their city.''
Located just a few minutes walk from Belsize Tube station, this development benefits from a prestigious London postcode. It is also located near
to the 1934 landmark Wells Coates grade I-listed Isokon building, which is evident in the design of this new block of apartments.
The development comprises 72 apartments of private and affordable tenure and forms an important landmark on this corner location.
BM3 was appointed to carry out the detailed design of the building, and also act as lead consultant on the project. A major element of our role on
this project was to ensure the detailing of the building was of the highest quality in order that the concept design be fully realised.
A mosaic from one of the former buildings on the site has been carefully removed and will be lovingly restored as part of the facade of the new building. The building is due for completion in 2017.
BM3 have gained planning permission for 51 new build apartments and 13,000 sqft retail with associated landscaping and parking at Blackfriars Street, Hereford. There is a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments provided over 3 blocks proposed for private rent, elderly affordable rent and general needs affordable rent. The retail is sub-dividable into 1, 2 or 3 units.
The site, before demolition, contained a car wash / valeting service, a furniture shop and a public car park and measures 0.69ha. These buildings were of low architectural quality and as part of the scheme were proposed for demolition.
