Flats overlook international sports venue

The development of 147 apartments overlooking Gloucestershire County Cricket form part of a plan to develop the ground into an international venue. We designed the apartment scheme in collaboration with Arturus architects, preparing the elevational design and full construction drawings. The project is located in a densely populated residential and conservation area in Bristol.

The apartment block is designed to appear as three buildings, forming the enclosure to one side of the cricket pitch. It sits above the club’s concourse level, providing club facilities and gate security.

The club’s name along with a multi-coloured façade in the club’s colours appears over the concourse entrance, but the entrances are positioned to feel separate from that of the Cricket Club. We have maximised the number of apartments that have a view of the pitch and most apartments have large windows leading on to generous balconies.
