Lakeshore, Bristol

At Lakeshore you can live an urban lifestyle on the doorstep of the countryside. Thoroughly modern apartments sat on top of a man-made lake in 10 acres of outstanding landscape. There's no doubt that Lakeshore is extra-ordinary.

Lakeshore looks to the past and points to the future. A 1970s architectural gem, it's monumental yet it's intimate; it's urban at the same time it's rural - we like that contradiction.

Lakeshore has history. Commissioned in 1970 by Imperial Tobacco whose empire included Bristol tobacco giants wd & ho Wills, designed by legendary Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, inspired by the grandfather of the modern movement Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, Lakeshore was nothing short of ground-breaking.

Two floors of concrete plus five storeys of Cor-Ten 'rust finished' steel exoskeleton sat on top of a man-made lake, set in 10 acres of landscape made up Wills' swish and debonair 1970s offices.

Fast forward to 2011, two decades after the building was abandoned, and Urban Splash has re-made and re-modelled this powerful 1970s icon into a special place that we hope people will choose to call 'home'.

The concrete building is where the shops and 'mall' were for all the employees of Wills. Duplex apartments that are close to the lake and the landscape, so you get a real sense of the buildings rural setting, there are also a mix of apartments that overlook the internal gardens.

The steel building sits on top, classically proportioned this is where Wills had their offices. We've taken the concrete frame and re-worked this into light and airy apartments with spacious balconies to sit outside and admire the views.

The landscape at Lakeshore is a delight. If the architecture wasn't enough to grab you then the landscape certainly will.

We've created a route for running to keep you fit and healthy, and areas for you to laze and loaf and soak up the sun. Add in the lake, the gym, the landscape, the orchards, the allotments and it all adds up to something quite special.

Lakeshore not only sits in a great environment but it's good to the environment too. The heating and hot water system is designed to massively reduce the carbon footprint of the building. The objective is to make this one of the most environmentally responsible buildings.

Lakeshore impresses from the moment you arrive..


Close enough to be in the hustle and bustle of the city, far enough away to be tranquil, pastoral and calm, Lakeshore means you can decide. 15 minutes to Bristol Temple Meads, 18 minutes to Bristol Airport, an hour and a half from London.

Bristol has always been a 'happening' city. Defined as much by its music culture as its maritime history, its identity is fiercely independent.

The city's relationship with Bath, with London, with Wales and with Cornwall put it right at the heart of colliding cultures which give the city its colour, its flavour, that's rightly different from anywhere else.

Lakeshore is just over three miles by road from the city centre. It's actually shorter and quicker by bike because as the crow flies it's only two miles - provided you have some 'inside knowledge' and use the cycle path from your doorstep.

Bristol's Floating Harbour, Arnolfini, Portishead, Trip-Hop, Banksy, Brunel's beautiful bridge across the Avon Gorge - provocative history swimming alongside Cabot Circus.

A short distance north you're in the Cotswolds. East and you're in Bath, Stonehenge and London, south you're in Devon and Cornwall, and west you're in Wales. There aren't many more cities with so many cultures half an hour's drive from home.
