Tonic Architecture

Clock Tower Yard , Temple Gate , Bristol , BS1 6QH

New buildings providing much-needed facilities for estate activities - set centrally to give access to both woodland and pasture. Timber cladding and louvres soften and blend the buildings with the surrounding woodland, while large areas of glass create an enviable workplace with clean, bright interior spaces and views over the Vale of Bourton and as far as Wales on a clear day. The long horizontal forms of the new buildings sit within the deep rust coloured rock strata of the hillside, providing a backdrop to the hustle of this once again thriving estate.
