New build terraced house in Bedminster

DHV architects have received planning consent for a new build infill house in Bedminster, South Bristol. Set on a trapezoidal plot measuring a mere 73sqm the building offers an imaginative solution to a constrained urban site. The 3bed house spans over three levels achieving a total floor area of 92sqm.


The massing of the house reflects the traditional Victorian terraces and appears to step down the hill, continuing the pattern of the existing terrace. The street facing elevation is contextual yet contemporary with vertical-emphasis windows and offset fenestration pattern. A timber-clad porch provides vertical storage for two bicycles  and helps articulate the facade. The scheme is unashamedly modern and sets a model for contemporary infill housing within the historic grain of the city.
