We were with a client last night and trying to explain how striking a simply constructed extension can be if there is enough space and light. We then referred them to this project we completed last month.

The client would now like us to proceed with their project.

Walters Architects have been involved in a small interior design project with a local junior school and the construction phase started last Monday.

This is always an exciting time, especially after the initial stages, because designs and ideas finally start to take shape.

The project should only take around 4 weeks so the teachers have a new study area before the new term starts.

Extending Listed Buildings

On
by Kevin Walters

Walters Architects have just completed this full services commission to extend a Grade II Listed Building within a Leicestershire Conservation Area.

The clients were initially apprehensive as they had experienced some difficulties in the past in terms of the buildings listing.

After developing a clear strategy and working with the Local Authorities Conservation Officer we were able to design and deliver a scheme with which all parties are extremely happy.

It just goes to show that appointing the right people at the correct stage of a project and communicating in a clear way can achieve good things.

Our clients are delighted
