Brindley Place Square
This little café, occupied in 2012 by Costa Coffee, sits at the heart of Brindley Place Square in Birmingham.  The architects, CZWG, responded to a brief that called for a building that was, " ... a focal point of the new commercial development at Brindleyplace."  What they came up with was an, " ... ‘eye-shaped’ glass and steel building ... at the centre of a radial pattern of York stone paving within an intensive landscape of semi-mature trees, sculpture, a large water feature and ‘shaped’ grassed areas.It is designed to accommodate 40 customers and more if the weather cooperates!
