Crosby Homes (Special Projects) LTD
This housing development at Wapping Wharf, Bristol, provides 105 apartments, nine town houses and a café. The brownfield development is located in a particularly sensitive and historic conservation area with a 200 metre frontage along the floating harbour, adjacent to the SS Great Britain. It has spectacular views across the river to the city centre.
The scheme was developed through public meetings with local interest groups prior to the planning application. The final designs, which have brought vitality and a new landmark to a previously derelict site, are considered to be a good reflection of these discussions and the criteria established at the meetings.
