Jewellery Quarter | Heritage restoration and retrofit
The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham is a place of unique character. Home to the most extensive surviving group of Victorian and 20th-century buildings devoted to jewellery manufacture and similar small goods, it's also a thriving manufacturing community.
Within the conservation area, CZWG are working with Galliard Homes on the restoration and retrofit of four retained buildings, two of which are grade II listed, as part of a larger regeneration scheme of new buildings, public realm and private residential courtyards.
CZWG Associate Jennie Harvey said, “It’s important for us to understand the qualities that give the area its significance, and to manage these carefully, enabling the historic buildings to play a key role in the regeneration and continued success of the area.”
CZWG Architect Alexandra Horsman added, “Our challenge is to retain and preserve the key elements of the existing buildings for future generations. It’s so important to come to site to fully understand the scheme in the context of its surrounds.”
