Royal Sutton Place – Phase 1

What we delivered

Originally built as a hotel, used as a sanatorium and the former home to the local registry service, we secured planning permission and developed construction drawings for the sympathetic conversion of the listed Sutton Coldfield Council house into 18 high quality residential apartments.

Town Hall from Gardens by Railway Road

What was the initial brief?

To maximise the development potential of the prominent site by converting the 1836 building into unique high quality residential apartments, while retaining key existing features.

How we did it?

As the building is listed it was import to ensure the exterior, which features beautiful architectural detailing, would appear largely untouched and be restored where possible.

Working alongside nationally renowned consultant, David Burton Pye OBE, we developed a historical study of this local landmark building.

The process allowed us to reveal the historical significance of the building, while realising value from the building. This led to developing a number of layouts that created high quality and unique living spaces in a variety of sizes, which combined historic and contemporary design styles.

After settling on ideal layouts we secured planning approval for the project and prepared detail design to facilitate its careful conversion.

As part of the wider vision to establish Royal Sutton Place we masterplanned the complementary design of the second and third phase projects on the site.
