Bristol’s iconic Colston Tower

Chapman Taylor, a multi-award winning architectural practice, has moved its Bristol design studio into new premises at Colston Tower as a result of the company’s rapid growth.

The move enables the company to remain in the heart of the city and will accommodate up to 25 architects.

The office was established in January 2012 to create new opportunities for the practice in the South West.

Nick Thursby, Bristol director at Chapman Taylor, comments: “The new ‘tower studio’ will allow the office to double in size over the coming years whilst maintaining its welcoming, productive and imaginative nature.”

Resolution Property, the pan-European real estate investor acquired Colston Tower in 2014.

Resolution’s plan for the building includes refurbishment and branding to reposition it within Bristol’s burgeoning creative and digital market.

Colston Tower comprises around 21,500 sq ft of retail on the ground floor and podium levels, with 67,500 sq ft of offices on the 13 upper floors.
