Planning victory for Alison Brooks' riverside homes in Bath

  • Comment

Alison Brooks Architects (ABA) has won planning permission for this waterside residential scheme in Bath

The 26-home development, which sits on a brownfield site on the banks of the River Avon, is phase two of the larger Bath Riverside housing-led scheme for developer Crest Nicholson Regeneration.

Once complete, the project will include 2,000 new homes, a new school and a waterfront park.

Consisting of three stone-clad terraces, which are a ‘variation on the Bath Crescent typology’, the ABA scheme contains 14 large family houses, six mews houses, six flats and a café.

Semi-detached villas along the river allow light and views through to the river from within the site. The mews reduce in height allowing sunlight into the central courtyard space.

The curved terraces are arranged around a public courtyard with landscaping designed by Grant Associates.

Acording to the practice the design has been formed by Bath’s topography, which slopes towards the river basin. The site’s connection to the new riverside walk and its orientation influenced the massing strategy (see full strategy attached).
