Life on a Lake
Copper Building is the latest addition to our Lakeshore story, adding the final touch to this special place located in the heart of South Bristol. Brand new one and two bedroom lakeside apartments and duplex dual aspect penthouses, nestled in 10 acres of lush private gardens. Sitting right next door to Lakeshore, our iconic Grade II Listed former headquarters of Imperial Tobacco.
Copper Building makes the most of views across the park to the hills beyond. Modernist in style and clad in copper, the building harks back to the original neighbouring Cor-ten steel Bristol landmark that we converted into new homes back in 2011.
Generous windows and wide balconies let the light and landscape pour in. Discover your own private park, lake, orchards and allotments. Oh, and did we mention it's in Bristol? One of the coolest (and greenest) cities around.
What our residents say?
"Lakeshore just feels like a home away from the world. The peace and quiet of the grounds makes being at home a pleasant experience. I love looking out over 10 acres of gardens (none of my mates have that much!) and watching the bats fly over the lake in the evening, watching our resident goslings grow up, and sitting on my balcony at the end of a long day feeling the sun on my face is an experience you won' t find in many other places in Bristol."
- Duncan Riddell, Lakeshore Resident
Originally designed to give factory workers somewhere to relax and lunch, the landscape is now a place for Lakeshore locals to make their own. You can grow vegetables, work out or relax and play.
Stroll through the orchard and willow glade, take a jog along the garden route, or grow your own fruit and veg in the allotments. Here you can hit the indoor gym before work and workout outdoors on a sunny Saturday. Or why not challenge the kids to a game of table tennis, then treat yourself to a bbq in the community garden?
We've put a lot of thought into creating a place where people connect. Whether it's growing together or hooking up for boules, you're sure to find new friends among your new neighbours.
Meet the Designers - Ferguson Mann Architects
Designed by local, award-winning architects Ferguson Mann, Copper Building has all the beautiful simplicity and attention to detail found in the original Skidmore, Owings and Merrill scheme.
Taking cues from the orchards nearby, the apple-red skin of the building gives way to golden flesh that reveals itself in yellow detail around the windows and the soft timber lining of the balconies.
Like the architecture of the International Style movement, these contemporary apartments have a straightforwardness of style; unpretentious, yet beautiful.
Clad in copper, the building's warm exterior complements its Cor-ten steel cousin - the original '70s building - across the way. The new entranceway opens up a view down to the original building, echoing that now lost connection between the factory and office.
Ferguson Mann Architects has a national reputation for award-winning architecture, urban design, conservation, and creative regeneration. We create and conserve special buildings and places, responding to the 'genius of place', always guided by the principles of sustainability.
This isn't just another waterfront development, these apartments are situated within their own
10-acre parkland and lake, and offer wider views across the landscape of South Bristol. It's country living within an urban environment.
- Nick Brown, Architect
