Grade II* Listed Building Interior

by Kevin Walters

When no one else could obtain planning permission to convert a Grade II* Listed Building Interior into a bar and restaurant in the center of Leicester Walters Architects stepped in and this is what happened.

Walters Architects have just photographed this single storey copper house extension which was completed last year.

The house is a Listed Building and already had a curved copper detail to a curved masonry element of the building which was inspirational to our design and detail.

Our client had an open mind regarding the solution and the conservation officer was more than supportive of the design.

Originally the copper was harsh and felt a little alien but now the patination process has started we are really happy with the results.

It wasn’t a conventional approach but this is what Walters Architects do.

New Contemporary Home

This design for a new contemporary home in Leicester was submitted for Planning Permission last month by Walters Architects and we (the client, Planning Consultant, Conservation Officer and our practice) are all excited to see what the planners think of it over the coming weeks.

The new home is set within a Conservation Area so some Heritage works were required and we worked closely with the Local Authorities Conservation Team and Planning Department to give ourselves the best chance of success.

We have a planning decision date for the 19th September but hope to have some comments from the Council before then.

It is a lovely design with which the client are delighted. Fingers crossed the Planners will like it as much.

Walters Architects have recently gained planning permission for this new build contemporary home in Leicestershire  and we are now working on the Building Control application.

The house consists of a double height living space, library, three bedrooms and an internal swimming pool and is in a lovely rural setting.

There is a little more work to do but we are almost there.

We cant wait to see it on site.
