The ambitious proposals provide a new dual aspect pavilion at the heart of their new site in Henbury.

The existing sports and social club and high quality football pitches will be retained on the site.

Planning permission for south Bristol apartment building

Planning permission for south Bristol apartment building

O’LearyGoss Architects’ design for a small apartment building in south Bristol for Crown Developments has received the approval of Bristol City Council’s Planning Committee.  The project, a three storey building providing a mix of one and two bedroom apartments, replaces a redundant commercial premises. With one exception, all apartment have generous terraces or balconies. The form of the building responds to its location at the confluence of three streets, and to the near-storey change in level across the site. The building is contemporary in design, but will be executed in the timeless material of brick, with elements finished in raised seam metal.

The proposal is for a car free development, in line with planning policy, with 20% CO2 reduction through on-site renewable energy generation. The ecological footprint will be enhanced by a biodiverse roof.

O’LearyGoss Architects’ design for a terrace of five houses on a backland site in south Bristol is the subject of a current planning application to Bristol City Council. The site has long been vacant, its last use being a builder’s yard well over a decade ago. Our proposals provide five family houses, each with a south facing garden set over three storeys to take advantage of the steep slope over the site. Each house has a dedicated on-site parking space, with a communal landscaped area to the front enhanced by two retained trees.
