Modern mews-style townhouses in a conservation area
These townhouses and studios are located near the Avon Gorge in the Clifton Village conservation area. The £1.1m development for Swan Hill Homes comprises seven three and four-storey townhouses and two separate self-contained studios to the rear. The approach to layout is a traditional mews building with the living room at first floor level and terraces located at the upper floors. Exteriors are enhanced with bright coloured renders typical of the area and brises soleils at roof level to provide shading to the large areas of glazing.
The roof comprises a series of curved aluminium standing seam bays which slope over the staircase areas. These are set back so that they are less visible from street level. This arrangement helps the design of this primary frontage and relates naturally to the neighbouring properties.
