Residential Development – 26 homes
A stunning housing development on the outskirts of Bristol that transforms an underused car parking into a vibrant community green. The proposals include 26 beautiful new homes, including terraces, semi-detached houses and apartments. The focal point for the development are two protected trees that sit in centre of the new green space. Parking provision is rationalised and moved to the front of the site to create a protective buffer between outdoor amenity space and the adjacent road (A38).
The architecture is inspired by 1930s suburban vernacular housing. Simple forms are combined with elements of detail that create a sense of quaint domesticity. Lime render, combined with white brick balance familiarity with modernity. Traditional architectural motifs are reinterpreted to suit modern living. The chimney form to the terraces provide stack vents and rooflights. On the semi-detached unit it is widened to great a landing point serving a roof level master bedroom.
The residential development is part of a wider mixed-use scheme that includes the partial extension of the adjacent Inn at Yanleigh to create new event, conferencing and community-use space.
