MADE were approached by the property owners to redevelop an existing disused retail/office block that had fallen into disrepair. The site being a 1960s out of local town centre shopping complex in Smethwick, West Midlands.
MADE's proposals comprises 14 residential apartments that sit above the existing ground floor retail. Each of the dwellings had private balconies and were designed around a central core. A new façade was designed for the outside of the building giving it a new lease of life that better suited the new use.
