O’LearyGoss Architects proposals for sensitive external alterations to the rear and sides of Guild Heritage House in Old Market have won planning permission. The proposals, which restore the 1913 street facade and reinstate the original railings, had enthusiastic support from the Old Market Community Association and a prior approval for permitted development to convert the building to 20 apartments. Work is now underway on site for completion in mid-2018.
The conversion of a former office building on Broad Street in the heart of Bristol’s old city to residential use has been completed. The building provides six apartments over three upper floors, retaining a commercial use to the street on the ground floor. The project, for Pediment Holdings Ltd., involved forming a new stairwell and extending the existing building into a lightwell at the rear. The building is next to the Grade I listed Church of St John the Baptist (visible in the photo), itself built into the medieval city walls.
Conversion of a 1970s former office building to create the distinctive Number One Bristol for PG Group is now complete. This project provides 148 apartments over 14 upper floors, and includes six double height penthouses. The majority of apartments have full height windows and access to glazed private balconies. Residents also have access to a roof garden and a communal garden room. Office space and retail units complete the development.
The steel skeletons of two of the remaining three apartment buildings which comprise Phase II of the Bankside development are now up. This phase will provide 27 apartments and 8 mews style houses, and is due for completion in early autumn 2018.
The steel frame for the new Design Technology building, at St Joseph’s School, Laverstock is now up. The main contractor, Beard, will have the school holidays to transform the skeleton so that by the new school term in September, staff and pupils will have a clearer idea of what their new building will be like. The £1.6M project is due to complete in early 2018.
The transformation of Lewins Place to Number One Bristol nears completion. The last balcony has just been

O’LearyGoss has obtained planning permission for a contemporary family home in the centre of Bristol. The impressive three storey, four bedroom house will be situated in the very sought after area of Clifton.
The design takes advantage of a retained rubble stone wall to form the front elevation at street level; maintaining the existing streetscape and aiding the formation of an enclosed private garden space. The upper floors of the building are mainly clad in copper ‘shingles’, giving the building a striking and modern appearance within the Whiteladies Road Conservation Area.
