2 Colmore Square | Birmingham
BREEAM excellent rating for refurbishment achieved

Seymour Harris were appointed by Nurton developments in mid2006 to explore options for the complete refurbishment of 2 Colmore Square (formerly Priory House). Following initial discussions, it was agreed that the building located at the base of Colmore Row in central Birmingham, would be designed to complement the adjacent Cannon House, but at the same time possess its own distinctive identity and branding. Accordingly Seymour Harris Architects provided a design solution that would invigorate and accentuate the main elevation and entrance of the building. This was critical to the future marketing and letting strategy of the development. A solid central section of the existing facade was removed and a new glazed cantilevered box containing office space was introduced. The juxtaposition of this new element against the faceted facade greatly increased the presence of the building within Colmore Square.
