GHA created the concept design for this large, mixed-use development of apartments above ground floor commercial units on a key site next to Birmingham’s Hippodrome.

Private courtyard

GHA also acted for Crosby Homes during the construction period of the two courtyard blocks whose elevations are finished in a quality buff brick and anodised aluminium.

The blocks are separated by a new public route between two existing streets. This allows glimpses into the greenery of each private courtyard and further animates the scheme and this part of the city centre.
