The Climbing Academy – Mothership


Services Design, Fabrication & Installation
Client The Climbing Academy
Location Charlton Street, Bristol

As a workshop of climbers, we were over the moon when The Climbing Academy asked us to work on the expansion of their Bristol site, The Mothership. This new, second floor has taken over a neglected warehouse and offers effectively double the amount of climbing.

Shape’s input, from design through to implementation, has allowed us to get the finish we were dreaming of

Movement from one floor to the next was via an old concrete staircase and fire escape. We installed a bespoke metal framework and mesh panel balustrade with a Douglas fir handrail inlaid with Black Diamond Richlite to add a statement element to the corridor.

Working from Bristol & London we deliver projects throughout the UK & internationally, applying rigorous technical expertise with positivity and enthusiasm to bring ideas to reality.
