Weston Lock, Bath

Bath was perceived as having a need for out of town shopping. But the Council was in favour of generating employment.  It took 3 years and extensive negotiations before a compromise was reached with a new bespoke 25,000sf factory provided to relocate an existing city business alongside 25,000sf of new non-food retail warehouse units.

The practice negotiated the complex requirements for this design with the local authority, creating a unified development that integrates three buildings into one coherent form. The scheme provides a number of environmental and urban design gains by way of improvements to the riverside and hard landscaping to Fieldings Road.
