Butchers Block – House Refurbishment

On
by Kevin Walters

Walters Architects refurbishment to this Grade II Listed Building in Leicestershire is now complete. Whilst the project only involved a single room it was a very involved and detailed scheme taking over four months of construction. The house was formally a butchers shop and accommodation which had previously enclosed the shop element. Our design has reinstated the original carcass wheel, introduced a contemporary angled roof light and incorporated new floor to ceiling cupboards with secret doors to another room and the garage. We are all (client, contractor, architect) very happy with the results. Walters Architects love working with historical buildings.

Artists in Leicester – Leicesters ‘Bring the Paint’ festival has been great. Covering walls and board in and around the Cultural Quarter. If you like street art (the art form previously known as graffiti) then take a look at some of Leicesters finest. It would be great if all building sites commissioned works like these instead of painting corporate colours on their hoardings. We need more of this type of creativity in our lives.
