The Bubble

The Bubble Land is situated on the south-east fringe of the town of Liskeard and is wholly contained within a road network formed by the A38 Liskeard by-pass, its slip roads, and the local distributor roads leading in and out of the town. Due to the visibility of the site the design approach taken was to introduce a series of curved roofs, which helped to soften the overall mass of the development and provide a sense of rhythm and scale. In this respect we believe that the positioning of the buildings and the introduction of a series of off-sets in the plans was important. In this way the visual effect of the buildings is less in the more exposed parts of the site. Particular detail features were added to provide interest to the elevations in terms of exposing the curved beams and by providing architectural masonry blocks to surround the feature columns.
