BuckleyGrayYeoman’s design transforms and reconfigures the interior spaces and the two main cores of the building. A grand new concierge entrance, with double height windows and a spacious reception area gives the building a positive, welcoming presence and has vastly improved the visitor experience. The refurbished loft-style office interiors have been designed to feature flexible workspace areas with plenty of natural light

A central part of the building’s transformation was the approach to the urban realm. BuckleyGrayYeoman re-establishes the building’s relationship to the street, activating the lower floors and transforming them into a lively new destination for Bristol.

On the southern side of the site, the old parking spaces around the building’s main entrance have been reclaimed to create a new podium environment. This has been landscaped to create a unique urban park, with informal outdoor seating, planting and a games area. This space opens up the main podium-level entrance to create a welcoming experience for visitors and tenants.
