REGENERATION CASE STUDY: THE EXCHANGE
05 Oct 2022
Birmingham’s Municipal Bank is a prominent 1930s neo-classical building newly remodelled into The Exchange, a civic hub and an important city centre presence for the University of Birmingham. The Centenary Square local landmark, previously dormant for 16 years, reconfigured and restored by Make Architects in collaboration with conservation specialists Donald Insall Associates and delivered by local architect Glancy Nicholls, takes a holistic approach to the role of sustainability. It proves adaptive reuse can deliver more than just carbon reduction when it comes to sustainability targets.
