The Circus, Bath

Over the course of two years, CMS worked on a renovation of a large property in The Circus, Bath in collaboration with Vertex Investment Group. Transformed from an old, rundown building to a stunning family home, this is an outcome we’re proud to have contributed to.

The Circus is a Grade I listed terrace and a distinguished asset of Bath’s Georgian Architecture, located in a UNESCO World Heritage designated area. This property remains an exceptional heritage asset with considerable early fabric remaining intact.

In taking on this project, our objective was to retain the building’s historic qualities whilst refurbishing it into a modern, stylish home. CMS were intrinsically involved in the listed building application and subsequent discharge of conditions.

The highlight of this project was uncovering hidden heritage treasures that had been concealed and protected by false ceilings, cupboards, and walls. It was incredible to reveal the building’s original splendour and then bring this feel into the renovation, retaining its sense of grandeur.

We worked closely with the client to create a feeling of opulence and luxury, without introducing too many new finishes. Our approach was light-touch, utilising much of the building’s original fabric such as its floorboards, whilst still giving it an air of quality.
