The forms of the residential buildings are used to define the strong framework of public open space that characterises the scheme. This buildings rise up in a series of inhabited terraces to an eight storey split rotunda, which acts as a focus to the new city quarter. Prominent sites have ground floor restaurants, helping animate the public realm.
360deg, The Crescent and Quay Point are now complete, and have been awarded Building for life Gold Standard and EcoHomes 'Very Good' rating.
The final 170 apartment residential building, Invicta, is currently on site with its major public open space framing views of Brunel's SS Great Britain and completing the long-planned 'Brunel Mile'. First completions are due in Summer 2013. Invicta incorporates an innovative public art project charting the passage and re-use of rainwater from its roof, through the landscape and out to Bristol's Floating Harbour. The large photovoltaic array on its roof contributes to the building's enhanced energy performance.
