Affordable City Centre Living

The design and future construction of 6no family homes on land within the area of Totterdown, Bristol, to provide social housing near Temple Meads train station, Bristol City Centre and roads leaving Bristol.

The scheme is planned to achieve a 20% reduction in typical energy consumption by utilising solar energy and rainwater harvesting technologies. Rear gardens orientated to the Southwest combine with an internal open plan layout to provide a large sociable space for day to day life and also large family activities.

With the provision of off street parking, plenty of storage and rooms sized for a modern family, the homes will accommodate an expanding family for many years.

The external fabric material palette is made up from predominately buff brick, chosen to provide a soft façade facing neighbours, combined with durable aluminium windows and pennant stone for the external hard landscaping to reflect the nature of the existing boundary wall.
