The Lewis Building,

The Lewis Building, Birmingham EPR Architects Built in the 1920s by renowned philanthropist, David Lewis, this building has been an integral part of Birmingham for almost 100 years. Originally home to Lewis’s department store before becoming an office. Situated in the popular Colmore Business District the building has now been renovated to deliver some of the best new Grade A offices in Birmingham. It also sees the return of the original Lewis name 25 years after the original shop closed. This regeneration started when LGIM Real Assets (Legal General) and Ediston Real Estate decided they could bring the building back to its former glory. The makeover across seven floors – includes a new 12,400 square foot top floor extension – to provide 114,000 square foot of offices. Alongside the office accommodation, also created was parking for 74 cars and a 60-space cycle hub with showers and changing facilities. Another feature was adding a seventh storey with external terraces and views across the city. A new double height entrance will create an arrival experience worthy of one of the best headquarters buildings in the city, featuring a library, meeting area, visitors lounge and an open exhibition space that can be used for bespoke events. All floors have received high quality finishes throughout and the building benefits from new mechanical and electrical systems. This modern and sustainable office space is set behind a beautiful classic Portland Stone façade giving it a real eye-catching appeal. 94 SPECIFIERS JOURNAL - SPRING 2018
