BRENTRY, BRISTOL


  • BRENTRY IS A NEW RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN NORTH BRISTOL FOR BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL, CONSISTING OF 34 NEW HOMES AMONGST SHARED OPEN SPACE WITHIN A NEIGHBOURHOOD THAT WILL ENHANCE THE LOCAL CHARACTER OF THE AREA AND ENABLE AN INCLUSIVE AND HEALTHY COMMUNITY TO FLOURISH.

  • A key design driver for the development is to position green open space at the heart. All residents will enjoy a view from their homes of open green space, from either the central amenity space or the landscape to the north west of the site, which the larger apartment block is nestled within.

    The area is pedestrian-focused, with parking tucked away and the existing footpaths retained and enhanced. Where possible existing trees are retained with buildings nestled in amongst them.

    All homes on the site will be affordable, with 8 being shared ownership and 26 socially rented. The development also includes 16 apartments and 1,190m2 of shared open space for the community to enjoy.


  • Buildings are predominantly red brick with accents of dark blue brick on key buildings and elements. Darker brick is used on key corners and elevations to help break up the massing and reduce the scale on the 3 storey apartment blocks. Front doors vary in colour to provide a unique identity to each house.

    Generously sized private gardens and private space at the front of houses, along with a built in bench, encourages residents to sit outside the front of their house looking on to the central amenity space. This encourages people to get to know their neighbours and engage their surroundings, increasing the sense of community, as well as aiding natural surveillance.
