Novers Hill, Bristol

A site with fantastic views and significant constraints

Every site offers challenges and opportunities. At Novers Hill, in south Bristol, the topography of the site created fantastic views across the city towards Clifton Suspension Bridge on a slope that made vehicular access a significant constraint. Through considering the views, the amenity of future residents and the existing residential context, a mews street providing discrete parking and studio works space was developed.

Bristol is known for its hillside development, with coloured terraces wrapping along the contours. Novers Hill now has been built out to continue this trend. The site forms part of a wider allocation for up to 440 new dwellings.
