APPROVED: elevational upgrades to Maxet House

The last piece of the planning puzzle has been achieved for this mixed use development in the heart of Bristol City Centre. The building originally consisted of a range of use classes – Bar, Comedy Club and Offices. Union Architecture, with the assistance of CSJ Planning ( have now achieved 3 planning approvals on this project. Ultimately the scheme will consist of 53 apartments with a restaurant at ground floor.

Union led the meetings and site visits with Bristol Council Planning in order to develop a scheme for the upgrade of the main Baldwin Street & Telephone Exchange elevations. Due to the sites location within the City and Queens Square conservation area a particularly sympathetic design was required.  After much negotiation, various sample submissions and visualisations, a positive decision was reached, allowing the construction works to progress in line with the agreed programme.
