A Birmingham office block is undergoing a £1.5 million refurbishment aimed at attracting small businesses into the city centre.
The upper six floors of the Art Deco-style 21 Bennetts Hill are being given a full makeover to create new office suites.
The site is owned by historic Birmingham property group Hortons’ Estate which has appointed Estilo Interiors to deliver the project which will create offices up to 1,560 sq ft.

Hortons said the design would reflect the building’s heritage, exposing and restoring the original marble entrance wall paneling, with other work including new changing facilities, an air conditioning system and lighting and finishes to floorings, ceilings and doors.
The suites are expected to be ready for occupation in the summer.
Richard Walker, commercial surveyor with Hortons’ Estate, said: “21 Bennetts Hill is an attractive period building which Hortons have owned since 1985.
“The refurbishment will be completed to a high standard and we look forward to seeing the finished product.”
