The Library of Birmingham will comprise of 10 levels, with nine above ground and a lower ground floor. It is being constructed using 21,000m³ of concrete in the frame, enough to fill more than eight Olympic sized swimming pools. The frame is reinforced by 3,000 tonnes of steel reinforcement, the equivalent weight of around 35,750 average UK men. 30,000m³ of material, enough to fill 60,000 bath tubs, had to be dug out of the basement. The building will feature a spacious entrance and foyer with mezzanine, the gateway to both the Library and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, to which the new Library will be physically connected.

2012 RIBA Stirling Prize Winner
The RIBA Stirling Prize judges said:
“The Sainsbury Laboratory is a timeless piece of architecture, sitting within a highly sensitive site, one overlooking the woods where Darwin walked with his tutor and mentor Henslow, discussing the origin of species. In this project Stanton Williams and their landscape architects have created a new landscape, a courtyard which flows out into the botanical gardens. The project is both highly particular and specialised, and at the same time a universal building type, taken to an extraordinary degree of sophistication and beauty.

Accordia Living was designed by a team of award winning architects including Feilden Clegg Bradley, Alison Brooks Architects and Macreanor Lavington Architects, the scheme is architecturally dynamic, innovative and unique which offers one of the most desirable and striking new build residential developments in the UK. Accordia Living is set in excess of eight acres of mature landscaping and has been designed with the focus of creating a close, cohesive community with green open spaces. The existing natural landscape combined with the 700 established trees onsite has dictated the design theme for Accordia Living – a layout themed around the idea of “living in a garden.”

The Cube is a new landmark destination building in a rapidly regenerating district of central Birmingham. It marks a key moment in Birmingham’s development: the first of a new phase of visionary buildings which will build on the work of Future System’s Selfridges building and pave the way for Mecanoo’s Library of Birmingham and Foreign Office Architects’ New Street station. Comprising offices, parking, apartments, retail units, a hotel, spa, restaurant and “sky bar”, The Cube was conceived as a building which would never close. Moreover this complex structure is permeable and crafted to open up routes and views to emerging neighbouring districts.
