Colliers Gardens, Bristol
Client : Brunelcare
Value : £5.8m (€6.7m)
Colliers Gardens is the flagship scheme of Brunelcare’s Bristol development programme, providing sheltered accommodation throughout the city.
The project comprised the construction of 50 Extra Care flats, consisting of five interconnecting blocks of very high standard accommodation, and a large lounge dining area. The “garden village” design is based on a traditional high street, with deliberate twists and turns and a series of terraces connected by 1 in 20 ramps, again adding to the organic character. The design promotes independent living and provides familiar surroundings for residents, with strong signage indicating facilities such as a hairdresser, health centre and launderette. The “high street” design, mixed finishing materials, and garden spaces provide a stimulating living environment.
