Holiday Inn Express Birmingham City Centre

A striking and modern 250-bed hotel in central Birmingham.

The HIEX Birmingham City Centre is an eighteen-storey development as a part of the Arena Central Masterplan. Close to Birmingham New Street, the high-rise development boasts views across the city centre.

The distinctive façade is a reference to the site’s former use as television studios. The resulting design is a pixelated language incorporating the windows into the overall effect. The hybrid structure utilises steel and pre-cast concrete frame, prefabricated bathrooms, and rainscreen cladding system. The split-level design permits access from the street and newly formed plaza; and enables ample daylighting of the elevated hospitality spaces.
