The Gothic is the first regenerative project in the wider Great Hampton Street Masterplan. The master plan – which is set to transform an unutilised area of the city – comprises three Grade II Listed and heritage buildings, which have been repurposed into a mixed-use hotspot.
There are many distinguishing features that make The Gothic stand out in the Birmingham property market, the most notable being its combination of heritage and contemporary styling. Take a look inside The Gothic and discover what makes the development so unique.
Traditional Cornicing & Heritage Styling
Over the years, The Gothic has carried many identities, from The Gothic Stores to The Gothic Inn. Cordia Blackswan was committed to preserving the building’s rich heritage and unique character from the outset, in both its exterior and interior designs.
The interior styling pays homage to the building’s rich history, with traditional cornicing, authentic Victorian features and exposed beams in numerous apartments throughout The Gothic.
These original features are complemented by the development’s impressive windows, which have been replaced with like-for-like replicas of the originals to retain the authenticity of The Gothic – from both the interior and exterior.
Crittall Style Doors
Cordia Blackswan is passionate about the history of the Jewellery Quarter, and while The Gothic is a restored piece of Birmingham heritage, the development also benefits from contemporary decor and the latest home advancements.
Statement Crittall-style doors not only contrast against soft décor and traditional cornicing, but these bold features also give residents the opportunity to divide and separate their living spaces.
For example, several apartments benefit from spacious kitchens, encased by decadent Crittall-style windows and doors, giving the option for extended dining areas and more sociable spaces.
The Gothic has been carefully crafted to meet the demands of the modern resident, from the authentic Victorian features to contemporary decor. In addition to Crittall-style doors and tasteful wall panelling, each and every apartment has been finished with herringbone flooring.
While both The Gothic and The Quality Works of The Gothic benefit from engineered timber flooring throughout the hallways, kitchen, living and dining areas, apartments in Goode’s House have LVT laid in a chevron pattern in a two-tone oak and white the finish.
The Gothic signifies many things – the first step in transforming Great Hampton Street and surrounding areas, Cordia Blackswan’s first residential development and more importantly, it has brought a piece of iconic Jewellery Quarter history back to life.
Extensive work has been carried out to ensure The Gothic’s exterior has been restored to its former glory, much like the interior. From authentic Victorian features to traditional cornicing, the rich history of this development can be seen in every inch of The Gothic, complemented by tasteful designs and contemporary décor.
