Harborne Mews, Birmingham, by Bryant Priest Newman Architects

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] Bryant Priest Newman Architects has submitted plans for this 11-home mews development in Harborne, south Birmingham

The scheme for Hare Hatch Developments, which features seven mews houses and four apartments, has both a central courtyard and upper floor outdoor terrace.

Practice co-founder Richard Newman said: ‘With the over-looking of the neighbouring garden a sensitive planning issue, a conventional two-storey house could not work in this context.’

‘Therefore we had to push the bedrooms to the back and provide a small courtyard for light and ventilation.  [However] this courtyard alone does not provide the necessary amenity area specified by local planning guidelines so we have proposed a roof terrace over the open plan living space.  

He added: ‘Due to the overlooking issue, this space is contained by 1.8m walls on each side, though skewed views up the site can be achieved through timber screens.’

Subject to planning the development is scheduled to start on site early next year (2011).
