Glass Wharf, Bristol
- Daylight & Sunlight Impacts
- Rights of Light
- Solar Glare
3 Glass Wharf is an 8 storey new-build office development in Bristol’s vibrant Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. The building features shimmering glass facades which reference the site’s historic use as a glass works. The floor to ceiling glazing and frameless glass balustrades maximise the panoramic views, with balconies providing solar shading.
Given the building’s glazed facade and its close proximity to Temple Meads railway station, GIA played a vital role in understanding and minimising the potential solar glare and dazzle impact on train drivers. Additionally, we were actively involved in assessing the impact on neighbouring properties in terms of Daylight & Sunlight, and Rights of Light.
