HRH Princess Anne visited Erdington last week to open the new wing of YMCA Birmingham and meet the team who delivered the acclaimed building, including Corstorphine + Wright (pictured above with Corstorphine + Wright Associate Director Holly Sissons).
The Chris Bryant Centre is a cafe and multi-use training centre in an impressive YMCA campus that includes accommodation for over 100 people.
The site now has 117 self-contained flats, along with a nursery, gym, training rooms and meeting rooms.
Princess Anne unveiled a commemorative plaque after being given a guided tour of the site, which now comprises The Orchard, The Vineyard and the Chris Bryant Centre, all designed and delivered by Corstorphine + Wright.
The local press also attended the day, with the Tyburn Mail proclaiming that “the site’s spectacular modern design and vibrant colours have created an impressive architectural landmark in Erdington.”
