Contract: Traditional JCT
Role: Lead Designer, Architect RIBA, Work Stages 0 – 7
Studio Spicer Architects was commissioned to design a replacement family home on this site, set in a Conservation Area and on one of the most sought after roads in the West Midlands.
The practice’s response to the initial brief challenged the client’s desire for a traditional-style dwelling. It offered, instead, a contemporary approach, based on increasing levels of natural light and a more efficient use of the building volume, to create a striking, beautiful, new family home.
The design recommends bespoke, hand-made Petersen* bricks from Denmark (Kolumba range) to form sculptured and chiselled forms, reflecting the Arts and Crafts style of the surrounding houses, but via a distinctly innovative and modern approach.
Construction due to commence 2018.
