Architecture and interior design in Bristol – history

 

Steeped in history that covers an eclectic mix of architectural styles from medieval to beyond, Bristol is a showcase for anyone wanting to study Georgian interior design in Bristol over the centuries.

The Georgian period (1720-1840) is perhaps the most notable, with some key architects and builders working in Bristol putting up many new buildings that reflected the prosperous economic climate. James Bridges was one such architect and civil engineer living in Bristol between 1757-1763. He designed the The Royal Fort House in Tyndalls Park, with his characteristic eye for detail, it still stands today as part of Bristol University, though originally was built as a mansion for a merchant banker. He also played a part in the restoration of Bristol Bridge, as during that era the exciting medieval structure needed replacing, together with Thomas Paty, another renowned architect from that period. One of the most famous buildings that can still be seen is the Theatre Royal, build in 1766, it’s said to be the oldest still operating theatre in England, and today is known as the Bristol Old Vic.

John Wood, the Elder, an English architect, did notable work in both Bristol and Bath. In the latter, he designed the North and South Parades, The Circus, Queen Square, St John’s Hospital, Prior Park and The Royal Mineral Water Hospital. In Bristol, he designed The Exchange. It’s a beautiful example of Georgian design and has Corinthian columns and pilasters on the exterior, and is much admired still today. You can view the stunning interior design of Bristol’s infamous building by visiting the beautiful Glass Arcade that St Nicholas Market that has been trading in since 1743.

Other key areas that were built during this period in Bristol were a plentiful supply of terraces and squares, areas like Hotwells – a district near to Clifton, and Clifton itself. The latter becoming an elegant, much sort after place to live – and still is. The Royal York Crescent in Clifton is the epitome of Georgian style, a sweeping row of stunning houses that can be seen from the banks of the river, and Sion Hill is another great example. Today, Bristol is a city full of diversity and colour – visit Totterdown to view all the pretty pastel houses – but with its design roots firmly rooted in its rich and varied architecture.
