O’LearyGoss Architects’ designs for a small infill residential development in Portishead for Crown Developments have received the unanimous approval of North Somerset Council’s Planning Committee. The project retains the original 19th century house and the conversion of an outbuilding to become a small cottage. Four new houses are arranged around a a cul-de-sac. These new buildings use simple pitched roof forms in brick and plain tile, with large windows carefully orientated to maximise sunlight whilst avoiding overlooking.
The buildings have been arranged around existing mature trees, and the site layout enhances the ecological footprint of the site. The proposals also address long standing residents’ concerns regarding road safety on Slade Road.
O’LearyGoss Architects’ designs for a hotel in Corn Street in the heart of Bristol’s Old City have been submitted for planning permission. The proposals convert a Grade II listed building by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, along with a 1960s office building next door, into a 126 room modern hotel, complete with foyer bar and restaurant sited on the ground floor. The proposed full height top-lit atrium through the later building provides the “wow” factor to complement the remodelled precast concrete facade which will be clad with Portland stone.
The first residents have now moved in to the townhouses designed by O’LearyGoss Architects in the former Glassworks building in Nailsea. Rollo Homes are currently completing the commercial unit at the High Street end.
O’LearyGoss Architects have won planning permission for the conversion of a former agricultural outbuilding to a new house. The design re-uses the existing stone barn structure, with a modern timber framed and clad to an existing open gable. Our design also replaces an insensitive steel clad wing with an oak framed living area orientated to catch afternoon and evening light.
Following a thorough dialogue with Gloucestershire City Council, O’LearyGoss Architects’ design for a new day care centre in Lyde Green has received planning permission. The design provides an outstanding caring and learning environment for up to 81 children from the local area. The building will be built by Kitto Construction for Clipper Properties Limited on behalf of Happy Days Nurseries.
