IA have designed the creation of a new courtyard at The Custard Factory, Birmingham.Read more +
In its conception, we looked at the classical approach to a piazza, whereby buildings form a backdrop to a secluded public square and open courtyard.
The view of the classical courtyard is combined with the vision of a contemporary and flexible use of outdoor space. Four main zones have been established which bound the existing courtyard. These zones vary according to use, with differing cross overs of activity creating a well linked proposed public space.
For our proposal, the infill of the existing lake feature creates an open paved area for several adaptable plug-in layouts to be applied. The following axonometric diagrams explore the potential public programmes.
Commencement on site April 2017.
