This project for developers Terrace Hill comprised the demolition of an existing outmoded 1960’s office building and its replacement with a new 7 storey high quality office development. The building provides around 9000sqm of high quality air conditioned office space close to Bristol Temple Meads station. Construction was not straightforward; the site was very constrained and subject to an extensive archaeological investigation which uncovered medieval street patterns and dwellings.
A new pedestrian piazza was created on Temple Way, which displays public art in the form of colourful slowly revolving columns by Bristol-based Walter Jack Studio. The piazza leads to a double height reception space and lift lobby.
The terracotta cladding and full height glazed elements give the building a striking appearance in the rapidly developing commercial Temple Quarter of the city.
