Barton Hill Phase 1, Bristol
A new housing development in Barton Hill, Bristol, comprising 25 new mixed tenure dwellings predominantly for rent. The scheme was developed within the New Deal for Communities area on the site of a demolished high rise development.
The new homes were developed to Lifetime Homes standard to achieve an Eco Homes rating of ‘Good’ as a minimum. The design incorporated a range of environmental measures relating to construction, such as locally sourced materials and ‘super-insulated’ cavities. The contemporary design uses a simple palette of materials and a series of timber bays to establish a new rhythm along the street and ensure active, well ovelooked, safe routes.
