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.
