6 BRINDLEYPLACE

Birmingham

Building Six forms part of the Brindleyplace Masterplan which unites Birmingham’s city centre with its historic canal network. It forms a strong front to two urban squares, with an arcade to the principle square connecting to adjacent buildings.

Providing 97,000 sq ft of office space and a restaurant at ground level, the building is a simple form with masonry facades. Brick and reconstituted stone are used in strata to create layers of ‘base, middle and top’ that resonate with the site’s industrial history and context. The interior is focused on a square atrium, animated by timber bridges which connect the office floors.
