Midlands Architectural Practice of the Year, rg+p Ltd, has relocated its Birmingham studio and announced ambitious plans to double the size of its team in the city over the next 12 months.

The award-winning firm has moved from its original base just off Colmore Row to a studio on Temple Street that can better accommodate its growth plans.

“Our Birmingham studio has been operational for the past five years but when the lease renewal was due on our previous premises, it presented an opportunity to redefine our offering in the city,” explains rg+p Birmingham’s studio director, Jack Whitehead. “Having developed a strong reputation for architectural and QS services in the West Midlands, we aspire to build on this by recruiting experts in project management, planning and interior architecture, as well as continuing our strong apprenticeship and work placement programme.

“The new studio offered the capacity to achieve this growth so the decision was taken to relocate. Temple Street is in the heart of the city, less than a five minute walk from New Street Station, so it will ensure we remain well-connected and visible among Birmingham’s thriving property sector,” adds Jack.


rg+p Birmingham is located within Northspring, a beautifully restored, six-storey, heritage building which also boasts Zoom rooms, podcast studio, screening room, concierge, and private roof terrace.

rg+p’s director, James Badley comments: “We’re excited to become part of the growing community at Northspring, which is already home to some of the city’s well-known consultants and professional services businesses. The building has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with modern amenities which we’re confident will appeal to the next generation we’re seeking to recruit. In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming new and existing clients at our studio launch event this summer.”

rg+p Birmingham currently comprises a team of six working on a wide portfolio including residential, commercial, industrial and educational schemes. Flagship projects include the £2m interior architecture refurbishment at New Oscott Retirement Village, part of The ExtraCare Charitable Trust’s portfolio, a £15m residential development on Angel Drove, Ely for Savills IM, and a £2.2m refurbishment and new build works to a portfolio of SEN college buildings for Homefield College, Loughborough.
