Amin Taha Architects is designing this mixeduse scheme for a client in the West Midlands.

The practice has completed a number of feasibility studies for the 15,000m 2 project for an anonymous developer. The scheme will have retail elements on the ground floor and offi ce space above. According to Taha, who is working with engineer Adams Kara Taylor, the form is 'sculpted' as if 'boiling water has been poured on to a block of ice' to produce the central public space. To promote the social interaction of the proposed 'creative office community', each unit has access to neighbouring balconies set within the building line, looking either into the courtyard or at adjacent passageways. After viewing several different plots, Taha hopes the project will start on site within a year.
