This office is the first building of the Paradise Masterplan in Birmingham’s city centre. Active and permeable ground floor spaces, occupied by a mix of uses, contribute to an open civic space. It is overlooked by a generous, sinuous perimeter roof terrace. The curved form of the building responds to its 360º aspect, providing a dynamic form which – with the richness of the twice-fired glazed faience fins – continually changes with the light and the position of the observer. Facade components were designed to reduce waste with a minimum number of profiles used. Cores and floorplates of the base building allow for future tenant fitouts, including of services for the installation of commercial kitchens and plant space to allow increased cooling system provision to all floors.  This office is the first building of the Paradise Masterplan in Birmingham’s city centre.
