Designscape wins planning for £125k Bath flat addition

  • Comment

Designscape has won planning for a new apartment behind the grade II-listed Cleveland Terrace in Bath

The 42m2 two-storey addition replaces a series of cluttered extensions to the 1830s terrace which had built up over time.

The £125,000 one-bedroom apartment will be clad in oxidised and patinated mild steel panels giving it a black-coloured finish.

The existing building, which houses a shop at the ground floor with residential accommodation above, will remain untouched.

The scheme is set to start on site in 2016.


The architect’s view

The two storey intervention replaces a cluttered accumulation of additions and extensions, using contemporary design and materials to bring greater order and a bold new identity to the rear of a fine Georgian terrace. 

The new one-bed apartment will straddle the rear of the existing building, and will be clad with oxidised and patinated mild steel panels to give a striking black finish. The steel plate balcony balustrade will be laser cut with a traditional ‘Bath finial’ railing pattern – but reversed so that the perforations are the shape of the traditional Bath cast iron railings.
