Context

Paintworks is a mixed-use development where the community can live, work and play. Located on a former Victorian paint and varnish factory that runs along the River Avon, the site has undergone renovation for the past decade, and is now considered one of Bristol’s key creative hubs.

Requirements

The design for the central plaza wanted to achieve a subtle, natural Mediterranean look and feel through the use of planting, landscaping and paving. A ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating level was sought for the development as a whole.

Bespoke bench designs were initially considered until it was realised that Marshalls' Natural Elements range met all the style and performance criteria for the project. The range's modular elements give flexibility and allow a degree of customisation.

The Natural Elements street furniture provides an attractive centrepiece. The customised lengths of the benches create an elongated look that is well suited to the mixed use space.

Natural Elements furniture uses FSC certified timbers, thereby contributing to BREEAM ratings.

Marshalls La Linia paving was selected in a range of plan sizes in harmonious shades. Created through Marshalls’ partnership with Stein + Design, La Linia is a beautifully textured concrete paving range. The paving colours and shapes are used to create striking visual effects.

Outcome

Hailed a great success, this project is likely to be nominated for a number of different architectural, design and community awards. Bristol City Council has rated the scheme as an ‘Exemplary Site’.

Testimonial from Crest Nicholson
“Paintworks is a unique development in maintaining a quality of design, use of natural materials and the creation of inviting public spaces which together create a delightful new community in the heart of Bristol. Marshalls Natural Elements benches have certainly complemented the design vision on the project and add to the goal to create thoughtfully designed spaces.”
