We are pleased to unveil our proposals for the regeneration of Birmingham’s Chamber of Commerce building, an exciting, mixed-use development that seeks to renovate the iconic John Madin building to ensure the long-term sustainable future occupation of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.
GNA working alongside Mercia Real Estate, have designed a scheme that restores the 1958 modernist office building, and sympathetically extends it, to create a flexible contemporary office and commercial space. Alongside this project, two independent bespoke residential buildings and a revived landscape strategy replace the site’s underutilised multistorey car parking.
The new residential buildings, tailored in mass and form, feature crafted facades that evoke the spirit of the John Madin design, providing contemporary new homes within the Edgbaston Village .
Contained within is the listed mosaic mural by the renowned artist John Piper. Depicting an exuberant vision of an optimistic 1960’s Birmingham, GNA has developed a strategy for the retention, restoration and promotion of this artwork within a remodelled glazed atrium entrance to the building.
The scheme has recently been submitted to Birmingham City Council for full planning approval.
