We are delighted that our social housing schemes for Bristol City Council are featured in the latest issue of The Architects’ Journal, which focuses on housing. The article heaps praise on the landscape design and implementation:
“The thought that has been fed into the streetscaping of these sites is where they prove particularly impressive in a way that seems almost inverse to their size.”
“At both developments, this carefully considered idea of sequencing is the result of what seems to have been a fruitful relationship with landscape architect Roundfield, which Russell says pushed ‘incredibly hard’ for nicely landscaped sites…”
Working with Emmett Russell Architects, we developed three infill schemes in all, as part of a wider strategy being undertaken by Bristol City Council to deliver new build council housing on council owned infill sites around the city.
One of the sites, Chandler Court, also picked up two architectural awards at the RIBA South West Awards in May 2018 in the general and sustainability categories. In July 2018, the Suffolk Close scheme won an LABC Building Excellence Award: Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development.
