The Project

Located in one of Bristol’s most popular locations, Redland Court is a visionary development by Juniper Homes that combines historic and new-build properties to create an exquisite collection of homes, with no two being quite the same.

Set in three acres of picturesque parkland, located on the old site of Redland High Girls’ School, the development has prioritised style, clever use of space, high quality specification and finishes. It has resulted in a collection of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom apartments, alongside 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom family townhouses, all providing stunning living spaces.

The challenge of the development was to balance the classic and contemporary – giving new purpose to Grade II listed buildings and restoring original features, while blending this with the new homes. For example, the stunning Manor House was built in the 1730s and takes prime position at Redland Court. This Grade II listed building has been transformed into apartments with exacting specifications, while retaining and restoring features such as the high ceilings and decorative architraves.

The Old School apartments have received similar treatment, having started life as an Assembly Hall built in 1906 and is also Grade II listed. Built later in 1931 and extended in 1955, The Science Building has been transformed into 17 design-led apartments that offer stunning views from outdoor terraces, Juliet balconies and Velux Cabrio windows.

Woven between these historic buildings are modern-built homes. The Townhouses offer contemporary four-bedroom family homes with open-plan living spread over three floors, while East Range offers two- and three-bedroom newly built, contemporary style homes located on the site of the old School Gym. 

The Brief

The overarching challenge of the project was to create balance between the old and the new buildings: retaining existing features, elements of the classic style and the varied history of the area, while combining this with the requirements of modern living to create a cohesive overall look and feel.

Bristol-based developer Juniper Homes tasked its local electrical contractor, David Fear Electrical Contractors, to source decorative electrical wiring accessories that would create continuity throughout the development, while also being sympathetic to the different ages of the properties. High quality manufacture and finishes were of the utmost importance.

The Solution

Located in the South West, David Fear Electrical Contractors have worked with Bristol-based Hamilton Litestat with great success on multiple projects in the past. Assured of the company’s high quality, flexible solutions, Hamilton’s Hartland designer switch plates and sockets were selected for use throughout the development. The Hartland collection has a slim, elegant and classic design, while soft round edges nod to the contemporary.

To complement the historic and contemporary buildings, the Hartland design was specified in two finishes: Antique Brass plates with Antique Brass Switches and Black inserts were chosen for the buildings with period features – including the Manor House, Old School and West Villa. Meanwhile, Satin Steel plates with Satin Steel switches and White inserts were used throughout the other properties.
