An exciting new bar and restaurant design, incorporating event-space, a micro-distillery & micro-brewery.
Bristol City Centre – Stokes Croft
In 2017 we were appointed to design a new multi-purpose hospitality and leisure venue in central Bristol. The scheme, for Bristol-based business Portland Brown, involves the renovation, conversion and extension of a cycle shop and motorcycle showroom into 1650 SqM of hospitality space. This included event-space, a bar and restaurant design, a taproom, a micro-distillery, a micro-brewery, an external courtyard and roof garden.
The design focuses on the creative re-use of two 1950s existing light-industrial buildings to create an exciting social venue with a community focused atmosphere. Sustainable features include a roof mounted PV array, green roofs and lightweight low-carbon structure and cladding.
The building sits opposite Portland Brown’s main office, also designed by Smith Maloney Architects Ltd.
