Fire Station to Student Accommodation

An ambitious brief to transform the former Grade 2 listed HQ of West Midlands Fire Service and Station into student accommodation. The challenge was to use spaces like the engine bays and ballroom into rooms for students.

The scheme won Channel 4’s Great British Buildings Restoration of the Year in 2017 in the 20th Century Category. It also won RICS Innovation through Design Award and their Conservation Award.
