Avon Tuning


We were appointed to design a new headquarters for a successful Bristol based business who are growing rapidly and wanting to cater for future demand. The aim was to provide state of the art facilities and service to their customers and create office/workshop that represents their brand.
  • Showcase the brand
  • Create distinct spaces for its users, clients and representatives
  • Provide key views into the inner workings of the garage from the customer area
  • Propose a rental unit that would provide additional income
  • Create an aesthetic that they can be proud of
  • Provide key space for customers to relax, whilst their vehicles are being serviced

New Headquarters
This was a very exciting project for a well-known and successful Bristol base business that offers services not only locally but also across the world through approved dealers. The main aim here was to develop a building that aligned with the companies image and aspirations moving forward.


A detailed analysis was carried out with the clients that included a top gear type cool wall analysis of precedents, where we then developed a scheme that truly embodied their ethos. The site was due to include a range of customer facing spaces and technical bays along with support spaces to enable modification and tuning of vehicles. In addition a further space was created to the end of the site to allow for the building to be sub-divided and rented until the company expanded into the entire site. The key items that were considered was the scale of the development, the rhythm of the building, apertures and key accents were added to really make the building standout. It was important throughout the development, not only to consider the staff but also the customer journey as well as representatives that would visit to get specialist training.
