Fort Dunlop is the re-invention of an iconic yet derelict storage warehouse into 300,000 sq ft of quality office space, 100 bedroom hotel, retail and supportive landscape facilities. Both the building’s transformation in use, and the regenerative perception of Birmingham to those travelling along the M6, has been achieved by a simple series of bold architectural insertions. These enhance the existing structure whilst breathing new life into the scheme through clear considered expressive design.

The scheme was re-opened in 2007, following refurbishment of the original structure designed by Sidney Stott + W.W. Gibbings in the 1920’s.
