Development of Key Brownfield Site

The proposed scheme offers an exemplar, policy-compliant, development on a key allocated brownfield site in a highly sustainable location within Bristol. This scheme offers 31 well-proportioned and contemporary sustainable homes that have been designed to a high standard and respond positively to their location and emerging urban context.

The scheme draws upon the terrace typology seen along Bath Road and offers a contemporary interpretation of this with modern ‘bay windows’ and detailing with a set back pitched roof form which roots the scheme firmly in its Totterdown location.

All flats are dual aspect and offer unrivalled views over Bristol with sunny south-facing balconies to the rear.

The scheme will be insulated to very high standards and heated by an exemplar communal heating system.

Through a highly collaborative and iterative process with Bristol City Council, we were able to secure planning approval for a 5-storey, 31-dwelling building on a restricted site that had been allocated for 21 dwellings only and which is sited next door to a 2-storey Grade II listed building.

  • Controversial scheme and site that was unanimously approved at planning committees
  • Adjacent to a Grade II listed building
  • Communal roof terrace, courtyard gardens and private balconies
  • Highly sustainable with PVs, ASHPs and communal heating system
  • High density development
