Brick House, Port Loop, Birmingham

by Glenn Howells for Urban Splash

The 43-acre site of the Port Loop masterplan is circled by historic canals – the Birmingham Canal Old Line and the Birmingham Canal – and lies 15 minutes’ walk along tow paths from the city centre.


The new homes, designed by Glenn Howells Architects (GHA) for Urban Splash in partnership with Places for People and Canals and River Trust, were delivered through a range of off-site modern methods of construction and are arranged around communal gardens, traffic-free green streets and new public greens.
