They key to our success in Edgbaston is offering complete service and designs tailored to our client’s requirements and the specific conditions of building on the Calthorpe Estates – we work most frequently on listed building projects here, but have designed and completed new build mansions and restored the fabulous local landmark Simpson’s restaurant.

These projects need high-quality designs in keeping with unique conditions of the area, and we’re fortunate enough to have a warm and productive working relationship with Birmingham City Council and English Heritage, as well as Calthorpe Estates. This means that our design work is sensitive to the special architecture and overall vision of the area, and that our planning permission applications – even for listed building projects – are thorough, considered and highly likely to be approved.

Our projects in Edgbaston include dozens of extension projects on Calthorpe Estates, as well as listed building refurbishments and new build private mansions on some of the areas’s most elegant and prestigious streets.

We’re very proud of our conservation work on period properties on Edgbaston’s best-known streets including the refurbishment of the dining room and orangery at Simpson’s
