1 and 2 College Square
Competition winning offices in central Bristol
Stride Treglown won a competition to design the first, 9,000sqm, phase of these office buildings at Bristol Harbourside. The siting the building presented a range of challenges because if its size and proximity to Bristol Cathedral and also its key position in the development of the Harbourside by Crest Nicholson.
The contemporary design of No. 1 College Square has 18m wide floorplates wrapped around a five-storey atrium which affords natural light to the interior of the building while providing a focal point for the people in the offices.
The predominately glazed elevation gives spectacular views over the city and Cathedral. The building was pre-let to financial services company, Hargreaves Lansdown. No. 2 College Square followed in similar style, adding a further 5,000sqm to the project.
