Leicester Street, Bedminster


The site is located between the East Street Conservation Area, and an area known as Bedminster Green which is destined to see a significant change from a light industrial and warehousing area to a new residential quarter in the next decade.

Our proposals for Crown Developments provide 26 apartments in a building that responds to context, with varying parapet heights reflecting the use of buff and red brick. These materials contrast with the use of raised seam metal. Deep recesses between the facade elements provide space for balconies.

The new building is set at the back of pavement, creating a small communal garden area to the rear which opens to the south west, and afternoon sunshine.

The building has been designed with a communal heating system, and provision for being linked to a future heat network.

Planning permission was received in early 2021, and the project is currently under construction.
