Broadmead Greenline | Bristol

A green thread through the shopping district

Broadmead was one of the city’s main shopping streets dating from the post war era. A comparison with the new shops, cafes and quality landscape at adjoining Cabot Circus and Quakers Friars made the street look even more tired and cluttered. It was brought up to a similar standard with clean, crisp paving and well-placed benches, with existing and new trees and vertical artworks defining the central space. The transformation created flow beside the shops and places to pause between, and the well-used space remained open to shoppers throughout. Broadmead manager John Hirst described the improvement as dramatic and said the scheme had exceeded all expectations.
