105 West Architects are busier than ever, with a wide variety of projects and new premises. For details of our new address, please go to the contact page. Some projects which had been put on hold through the depths of the UK recession have started up again, but a strong influx of new projects has been seen since the start of spring.
Suburban Residential Scheme
A feasibility study for scheme of nine new flats in two separate buildings has been completed and a planning application has been submitted. The scheme is in a suburb to the east of Bristol and is currently intended to be a contemporary intervention into a rather bland street scape.
Alterations to a Large Rural House
105 West Architects have been appointed for a project to extend and carry out extensive alterations, both internal and external, to a large rural property north of Bristol. The existing property does not entirely suit the requirements of the current owners and the development of the property in the past has lead to some rather disjointed elevations. Planning permission has been granted for the scheme, which is set to very rapidly move on to building regulations and construction.
New Build House
Following a protracted process to obtain highways permissions, the start of construction for this project is imminent. The result will be a five storey house split into two large maisonettes at the end of a grade 2 listed terrace in the Clifton area of Bristol.
Performing Arts Centre
The client had previously experienced problems gaining listed building permissions, 105 West Architects were contacted to carry out a historic assessment and provide supporting planning documentation for a former licensed premises in the Brislington area of Bristol. Listed building consent has now been granted for the former public house to become the new centre for the Bristol School of Performing Arts.
A potential residential development in the central area of Bristol is moving from the pre-application design stages to the commencement of the planning design and consultation stage.
Extension of House and New Annexe
A substantial house in central Bristol has been purchased with the intention of replacing the existing extension to the property and introducing a new annexe building in the grounds. 105 West have submitted a planning application for the replacement extension and are in the process of moving from the feasibility stage to the preparation of a planning application for the annexe building.
Listed building consents have been gained for alterations to top floor property overlooking the Avon Gorge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge and alterations to a property on the village green in Shirehampton. Building regulations approval has also been gained for the Shirehampton property. Both projects are moving to the construction phase.
Construction is nearing completion for a day nursery in a large listed building in the Clifton area of Bristol. The nursery is due to open for business by the end of the summer 2010.
