Offices & Commercial

10-12 Temple Street was a vacant 1960s office block on a key route in Birmingham city centre. With the surrounding regeneration, its owners wanted to transform the site into a vibrant office space catering to the discerning commercial occupier, who is increasingly looking for amenities and convenience as well as character.

We stripped the building completely, giving it a new entrance, core and office space that incorporated exposed services and LED lighting. The façade was entirely replaced with full-height curtain walling glazing to maximise natural daylight. 

This eliminated the solid appearance of black stone over cladding from the existing concrete elevation and introduced a more animated exterior. The sleek new frontage makes a positive contribution to the street scene, and the redesigned entrance area creates a sense of arrival for staff and visitors.

We designed the interior to maximise commercial value. This included adding a new floor by removing internal walls and courtyards, with flexible floorplates that can be easily subdivided to suit a range of occupier needs. 

The existing basement car park became a large cycle park with high-quality shower and changing facilities, reflecting city-centre commuting trends.
