Master Plan

 

This project initially involved the production of a master plan for development of The Ideal Benefit Society’s headquarters site in the Moseley district of Birmingham.

The building and everything within its grounds are Grade II Listed, and so local authority conservation officers took a very close interest in the project.

The proposals which were brought forward included the conversion of all the buildings to residential use, and the construction of 2 new apartment buildings within the grounds. Key to the success of the project was a good understanding of the existing buildings and the sensitivity of the context.

A total of 67 dwellings were consented on the 6 acre site.

Brewer and Bakers Pub; Camp Hill Birmingham

 

Concept 2017

 

Description;

New 7 storey Apartment Block

 

The site of the Brewer and Baker pub had been sitting derelict for just over 10 years. The client had been planning to convert the existing run down pub into a restaurant site, unware of any other options.

 

DHA were appointed to carry out pre-application discussions with the local planning department for the possibility of a new building on the site.

 

Through initial investigations and research, DHA uncovered the potential of the site producing a seven storey block which would stand as a gateway site leading to the widely know Digbeth area of Birmingham.

 

The client praised DHA for their vision and helping them in realising the sites full potential
