PRACTICE PROFILE

简介

Resolving Complexity The principals of the practice have a long track record in planning complex sites and buildings with challenging physical, planning, heritage and economic constraints. For example the Central Fire Station project in Birmingham is regarded as one of the most technically challenging projects in the country, due to its extraordinary constraints. Sustainability The practice adopts a refreshing approach to sustainability that is both intelligent and pragmatic. All projects are underpinned by the practice’s Sustainability Toolkit, which was developed in collaboration with Birmingham City University. This considers the three key facets of sustainability, including economic, social and environmental factors.

解决复杂性 负责现场和建筑的规划常常受到物理、规划、文物、 经济等诸多限制,设计院坚持针对此类复杂场地及建 筑保持长期记录。例如,伯明翰中央消防站项目因为 其特殊限制,被视为全国技术难度最大的项目之一。 这些办法既适用于单体建筑的设计,也适用于大型重 建区域的规划。 可持续发展 设计院采用明智、务实的可持续发展办法。 设计院与伯明翰大学合作开发的可持续发展工具包为 所有项目提供支持。可持续发展的三个最重要因素包 括经济因素、社会因素和环境因素。

简介

Collaborations Whilst the practice has developed a healthy and varied workload, it also works in collaboration with other practices, including: Richard Johnson Associates – a semi-retired architect with a prolific portfolio of clients and built projects within the commercial and education sector. Webb Gray and Partners: a 100 year-old practice with offices in Birmingham’s central business district. In 2010, K4 and Webb Gray formed a strategic alliance, with K4 providing expert design advice on a range of projects including headquarter buildings and speculative office buildings. This reciprocal arrangement allows the 2 practices to combine resource to help manage larger single commissions, in particular those with a bias towards commercial offices, manufacturing and distribution.
