  • Town planning

Terrace Mount was a large car park, situated on a plateau with magnificent views over Bournemouth gardens and towards the sea. 

The practice was originally appointed by Redrow Homes as town planning and urban design consultant for a residential-led mixed use scheme for Terrace Mount comprising 208 apartments, public and private car parking, together with frontage food drink and retail uses at the interface of the site with the town centre.

Through discussions with the local planning authority, Historic England, the South West Design Review Panel and the Bournemouth Civic Society, the optimum height, massing and frontage treatment for the development was established. 

We subsequently progressed updated proposals for the site on behalf of THAT Group, which replaced some of the residential accommodation with two high quality hotels. Hilton Bournemouth and Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth opened in 2015.
