St Ives architects move into new home
Idyllic sea views and a slice of St Ives’ industrial history – architects Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole today moved into their new home on the edge of town.
Custom-built Atlantic Studios is on the former St Ives Motor Company site – home of the last petrol station in the town – on Trelyon Avenue at the gateway to the town.
PBWC has been based in St Ives since 1973. Their credits range from the new Penwith College buildings to the stunning Lizard lifeboat house.
The company, which celebrates 40 years in practice this year, spent a year decontaminating, demolishing and re-building the former car workshops and sales room to create their new workspace.

Architectural director Rachael Gaunt said: “We purchased the former St Ives Motor Company site on the main road into St Ives earlier this year to create a new workspace for our team.
“We are passionate about St Ives and are delighted that we have secured such an amazing place to work from.”
The new studio has allowed the practice to expand, taking on two new members of staff to create a team of 16.
The name Atlantic Studio comes from the sea views over St Ives Bay.
PBWC Architects say they have also expanded the range of services they offer in line with the move.
Rachael said: “The construction of the new studio was aided by a Regional Growth Fund grant which assisted with the creation of our new space. The grant has also allowed us to invest in cutting edge technology that harnesses the power of the Superfast Fibre network in Cornwall.
“We are delighted that our new studio has been handed over ahead of programme and we must extend thanks to the amazing team at Symons Construction.”
