The Lewis Building, Birmingham, 2021, EPR Architects
This refurbishment an extension of a 1920’s department store was completed by London-based practice, EPR Architects. The design respects the original character of the structure, while updating the accommodation to provide superlative Grade A office spaces in the Colmore Business District. The cores were remodelled to provide far greater efficiency and a grand, double-height reception space with a new canopy forms the entrance experience, which includes a library, meeting area, lounge and exhibition space. A new 7th floor was added, creating terraces all the way around the building and all aspects of the design increase the building’s sustainability.
Photography completed over one day. (All images copyright Simon Kennedy, London Architectural Photographer)
