The Bristol Wing November, 2017

As the YMCA’s new hostel in Bristol nears completion we celebrate the imminent hand over. The Bristol Wing will serve the needs of city visitors as well as offering accommodation for some young people making their way in the city between school and work. Led by FMA’s guiding hand the YMCA and J Perkins Construction have re-captured the simple utilitarian magnificence of this late 20th Century police office building. The robust circulation spaces forming the heart of this building contain fully refurbished terrazzo lobby floors and a period lift carefully upgraded whilst retaining the iconic mesh cage and flamboyant brass door surrounds.
