O’LearyGoss Architects have submitted a planning application on behalf of BDV Platinum for three new mews houses just off Portland Square in Bristol. The houses make use of a vacant plot of land behind Portland View, an apartment building also designed by O’LearyGoss Architects and completed in 2016.
Two of the mews houses are three storeys in height, with the living space on the topmost floor to make maximum use of daylight and sunlight. The third is a single storey building, with a small courtyard and rooflights, again to enhance the living spaces for residents.
Off street parking will be in a courtyard and set around a newly planted tree. A biodiverse roof and the use of air source heat pumps for domestic hot water enhance the sustainability credentials of the proposals.
The buildings use a red stock brick, a timeless material similar to that used successfully on Portland View.
