Three Brindleyplace

Birmingham, England

Brindleyplace is a mixed-use development by Argent comprising office buildings, shops, restaurants, housing and leisure facilities. Three Brindleyplace fronts the main civic square and steps down to three storeys towards the canal. Its central atrium projects a light post-and-spandrel structure in contrast to the solidity of the external brick, revealing this way the two constructional principles of bearing wall and steel frame structure at work.
