Claridge Architects’ designs for a major housing scheme in Birmingham have secured approval from councillors
The London-based practice’s plans for joint venture partners Apsley House Capital and Galliard Homes will create 379 new dwellings on a disused car park plot in Southside.
The 32,516m² Timber Yard project includes two new L-shaped buildings set around a central courtyard, with new public thoroughfares, a landscaped garden and pocket parks.
Claridge Architects director Marcus Claridge said: ’We look forward to delivering high-quality homes for young professionals in Birmingham’s centre.
’These will be set in green, landscaped parkland with new public pocket parks and thoroughfares, lending architectural moments and interactions that help to enhance people’s lives.’
Work will commence immediately, with an estimated completion date of 2021.
The practice is also working as masterplanners on a canal-side residential scheme in Birminham, also for Apsley House Capital and Galliard Homes.
