Birmingham Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce regeneration scheme is an exciting, mixed-use development that seeks to renovate the iconic John Madin building to ensure the long-term future occupation of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.

Glancy Nicholls Architects, 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 new landscaped area replace the site’s underutilised multistorey carparking.

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 Edgbaston Village. The scheme has been submitted for full planning approval.

An important part in the history of modernism in Birmingham, the building is one of few John Madin buildings left standing in the city.

The entrance foyer further celebrates modernism in the city with a unique feature John Piper mural showing the abstracted local Calthorpe Estate made from gloss-fired tiles in vivid greens, yellow and oranges on a dark background.
