Hetreed Ross Architects Ltd

Bath Brewery , Toll Bridge Road , Batheaston , BATH , Somerset , BA1 7DE

Situated in Bath’s World Heritage Site and Conservation area, this new sustainable home at the end of a back garden had to meet the challenges posed by an urban site surrounded by other properties. By creating split levels and designing a semi sunken ground floor living room, the property nestles against the cliff at the end of our client’s garden and sits lower in the landscape than its neighbours. Overlooking and privacy were of concern to both our clients and the planners, so height, orientation and window locations were of primary concern.
