Woodhill Road, Portishead,

Planning Permission given March 2018.
Building Regulation complete March 2018.

Our brief was to modernise the whole building (for a striking contemporary design) - with masses of light internally and lots of 'wow-features'!

To complication matters - the building is set in a Conservation Area.dd

The existing building was very dark internally, for a number of reasons:

  • Low number of windows.
  • Split levels internally (preventing light passing through).
  • Large roof overhangs (shielding windows from light).
  • Recessed entrance with frosted glass (preventing light entering).
  • Dark materials, especially internally (making it look and feel dark).
  • Orientation to the sun, where most of the day sun light is only at the side.
