The project of the refurbishment of the blocks of flats at College Road in Birmingham – United Kingdom -, proposes the change of use of some existing spaces, apart from extending other areas.
Before carrying out the works of refurbishment, the existing blocks have parts whose use are retail. Postigo Arquitectos’ proposal improve the existing layout of the buildings and turn their retail areas into dwellings.
The refurbishment also consists of adding a new story for each existing block, including 18 new residential units extra for the development.
All these volumes together have a U-shaped footprint which generate an interior courtyard used to place the car parking spaces required.
