the origins

BYM acquired Overbridge Square as a development of five office buildings in Newbury. The scheme perfectly lent itself to conversion under permitted development rights into a development of apartments. The site also offered an opportunity to provide parking spaces for nearby offices.

the brief

The vision for the Overbridge Square was to convert two floors of the existing office buildings to residential apartments while seeking planning permission for a third storey of penthouses to be added to some of the buildings.

design philosophy

The scheme was carefully designed to provide a secure and stylish living environment. Every building has a lift that provides access to all levels and an entry way with private post boxes. Outside car and bike parking is available for each property, while expansive communal gardens along the canal bring an air of tranquillity to the development. The scheme also sits against the beautiful River Kennet, providing a picturesque riverside path where residents can enjoy the fresh air and nature.

development plan


Overbridge Square offers a stylish living environment with a range of one- and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses arranged across three storeys in modern industrial chic buildings.

the properties

Each apartment has been meticulously designed and set out to maximise space. Expansive open plan living spaces, large Italian designer kitchens with integrated appliances and substantial dedicated storage space all feature. High quality fixtures and fittings adorn the bathrooms and kitchens. A number of the two-bedroom apartments at Overbridge Square boast a separate study, making working from home a breeze. Stunning penthouses crown the building, each with its own balcony.
