Completion of One Chamberlain Square
Eric Parry Architects has celebrated the completion of One Chamberlain Square, the first building to complete on Argent and Hermes’ Paradise Birmingham masterplan. The 172,000 sq ft project is Eric Parry Architects’ first completed project in Birmingham city centre and will become the regional HQ of “big four” professional services firm PwC, as well as home to the debut Birmingham branch of the popular Bombay café-inspired Dishoom restaurant.
Lee Higson, Associate Director at Eric Parry Architects said: “The aspiration for One Chamberlain Square was to create a statement that would set the Paradise development apart, delivering an office building with a level of quality and finish that is unprecedented in the Birmingham market, but completely appropriate to this hugely significant site in the city’s civic heart.
This is a really hardworking building that delivers fantastic value. In particular, a huge amount of thinking has gone into the façade of the building, where we developed a kit of standardised components that allowed us to create the kind of expressive design that might normally only be achieved with a prime London budget.”
