Khoury ready to go on Brum private house - images

  • Comment
Birmingham-based Khoury Architects is set to start construction on this new residential property in Handsworth Wood, in the city.

Work will start on the three-storey, five-bedroom structure this autumn. The £320,000 building, for a private client, will be on a tight urban site.

The interior is described by the architect as 'minimalist and Modern', with double-height spaces, open-plan galleries, glass walls, hidden storage and a feature staircase.

The street facade attempts to 'marry traditional and contemporary structural solutions' using brick and block as well as structural glazing and exposed-concrete slabs.

The building's environmental plus points include solar heating, rainwater harvesting and recycled insulation.

Khoury Architects aims to complete by March 2007.
