Upgrading Temple Quarter

Brunel’s Temple Meads Station is in the heart of a new area of regeneration in Bristol. New offices, university buildings, student accommodation and housing are springing up all around, bringing people and life back to a formerly car-dominated part of the city.

As the station towers, former engine sheds and platform roof are all listed buildings, a townscape and visual impact assessment was required to assess the effect of adding upper storeys to a 1980s office block. The use of verified views helped to determine a suitable roof design which left station views intact and planning permission was achieved.

Architect: TP Bennett
