Inns Court Bristol
for Bristol City Council
Acanthus LW Architects are working with Bristol based Acanthus
Ferguson Mann Architects on environmental improvements and masterplanning
of Inns Court Estate in Bristol.
While the low density Radburn layout of the estate was generally liked by the residents, the lack of a traditional street pattern, the open access to the housing courts and the large expanses of functionless grassed open space was identified as a major cause of crime and security problems.
Following close consultation with the residents, proposals were developed to improve the environment for the community in terms of safe access, general appearance, fear of crime and security of car parking.
The first eight phases of this 2.9m, 13 phase, project have now been completed. Throughout the project all members of the design and construction team have developed proposals through a partnership learning from experience gained in previous phases.
