31 Great George Street, Bristol

Client: The Church Commissioners

On a prominent south facing site ending an important Georgian terrace in a central Conservation Area, the building respond sympathetically to its historic context and at the same time exploits its hillside topography to maximise the quality of the office space. The Great George Street element of the building is of similar proportions to the adjacent buildings, and the lower floors are developed as a series of terraced levels arranged around a central courtyard.

Use of natural ashlar stonework and soft red brickwork throughout ensures the building is sympathetic to its historic neighbours.
