Speculative offices including conversion of Church facade whilst at Holder Mathias. This prominent site in Bristol was occupied by a 1960's office as well as the shell of a church badly damaged during the war. The front facade and tower of the church remained, however, so the design sort to incorporate the restored facade and contrast it with a contemporary Bath stone and curtain walling solution to the new offices, replacing the existing building on the site. The project was secured following a design competition and the resultant building has proved a popular landmark in this conservation area in Bristol.
