If you’ve ended up here….

…then we’ve got good news: our lovely new website is even better than this one – our blog is incorporated into one site. Clever huh?

Head over there instead. You’ll find lots of exciting news and lovely pictures.


BPN’s blog is on the move

14 04 2011

Blogging here on WordPress was never expected to be:
1. so much fun,
2. such a success,
3. so easy,
4. forever.

You might have been wondering why things have been a bit quiet on the blog for the last couple of weeks. Well, we’ve been a bit busy behind the scenes because we’re on the move, but we’re not going far: we’ve got a brand spanking shiny new website which incorporates a blog. You could say we’ve given ourselves a promotion.

The content from this WordPress site will be pulled over to the new site (much of it is already there), and the new site will make life a lot easier for our regular readers to keep up with news and changes at the practice, as well as seeing what we blog.

Our new website has been created by those rather clever people at Supercool Design – we’ve had a fantastic time working with them to build a site that celebrates our creative and collaborative approach to architecture. We’ve heard that architects can be a bit fussy (nonsense of course), but James, Katie and the rest of the Supercool team have made it seem easy. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

So, this will probably be the last you see of us here. WordPress has been a great starting point for us but it’s time for a change.

We’ll see you over at the new place http://bryantpriestnewman.com

TTFN. It’s been emotional.

Chip off the old bloc

The new bloc Hotel round on Caroline Street is nearly complete. Not far off our original perspective, I’m sure you’ll agree:

Hey Neighbour!

We still have space available to rent in our building. If you’re thinking of a change, or perhaps you’re a start-up looking for premises, we have 3 rooms of varying size (12sqm, 22sqm & 27sqm). The smallest unit would suit someone looking for a small studio for 1 or 2 people, the larger spaces could easily accommodate more. If you’re interested, drop Richard Newman a line for more info.

Ever Wondered…

…how the man who drives the snowplough gets to work?

…what the Localism Bill really means?

…what the new Library of Birmingham will look like on the inside?

…who is behind the biography of Nikolaus Pevsner due to be published this year?

…how to dunk yourself in a basket?

Happy Christmas

23 12 2010

Once again we’re making a donation to charity instead of sending cards and gifts, but we need your help…

Send us your anagrams of ‘Happy Christmas’.

We’ve made a start (below), but we think you can do better and we want you to make us laugh.  Make us laugh the most and you’ll get to decide which charity receives our donation this year.

Get your thinking caps on and email your anagrams to mail@bryantpriestnewman.com

Have a very happy Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!

From all of us at Bryant Priest Newman Architects
