LT Studio has been instructed to provide landscape design for Building 3a; a proposed seven storey building that forms part of the Bristol Harbourside Masterplan.
The site lies at the junction between the original ‘Rope Walk’- a 300m long piece of open ground used to produce rope for the busy shipping industry during the 1800’s – and the alignment of Lamb Street which still remains intact to the north of the site. We have used the geometries of these two historic alignments to generate a rigorous structure for the landscape arrangements of the courtyard spaces at Building 3A and also beyond into the Urban Parterre.
The u-shaped shared courtyard will surround the residential scheme providing good quality outdoor space for all residents. At ground level each plot will have an individual external space both private and semi-private. Timber decking and planter arrangements along Canons Way, the main street, provide a buffer from the traffic, further green outdoor space for local residents and a concealed natural vent to the basement car park.
This project was completed in December 2015.
