Make Architects


The Birmingham Municipal Bank was built in 1933 to designs by reputed Midlands architect T. Cecil Howitt. Make's refurbishment of this Grade II-listed building, located on Birmingham’s historic Centenary Square, transforms it into a new multi-functional building for the University of Birmingham. The city-centre site supports a public programme of cafés and galleries, collaborative workspaces, and places for events, research and meetings.
