Bristol Studio Officially Opens

We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce you to our new Bristol team and our new Bristol studio

Michael Fox

We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce you to our new Bristol team and our new Bristol studio in the heart of the City Centre.

The studio is being lead by Mike Fox (Director) and Dan Smith (Associate Director) who are supported by Danny Hutchings, Chris Binnington and Olu Okeleye as well as the team in Cardiff. Together our Bristol team covers all of our specialisms inclduing planning, urban design and landscape architecture and have a collective experience that spans the public and private sector across the South West, Wales and Internationally.

After 17 years of trading in Cardiff, during which we’ve grown the team to service larger and more complex projects, we’ve decided to fully establish ourselves in Bristol. Our aim is to help create great places across the City and wider South West Region. We feel that it is an opportunity to support the goals of the Western Gateway partnership, the UK’s first pan-regional powerhouse to span two countries. Stretching across South Wales and Western England, the powerhouse matches our own ambitions to reach net zero whilst also providing opportunities to those at risk of being left behind as well as optimising the benefits of new development.

Our Bristol Studio, in the Generator Building, a rejuvenated property which once housed the City’s generators for the electric tram network, fits with so many of our objectives around urbanism, great places, public transport and regeneration.

Despite the challenges that lie ahead in the wider economy we feel that we can add a different perspective on placemaking into the already thriving and excellent community of consultants in the City.
