Cowper Griffith is delighted to announce a recent consent and unanimous Committee approval for the conversion of the GII* Listed Roundhouse in central Birmingham into a new visitor facility offering complementary interpretation, leisure, eating and enterprise spaces.
Project Partner Simon Redman says: ‘The Roundhouse is a unique and prized asset in the heart of our second city. We are grateful for and remain excited by the opportunity to transform this genuine ‘one off’ into a dynamic and diverse facility for enterprise, for urban heritage, cycle-based leisure and eating. We hope it will have a transformative effect on its surroundings. The design will carefully conserve and show off the structure’s idiosyncratic form and construction whilst introducing a family of contemporary – and sometimes bold - insertions, enabling full reuse. Project architect Neil Charlton has successfully completed extensive consultations with a broad stakeholder group to ensure the facility exceeds all expectations.’
