This restaurant attached to a research centre by Snohetta Architects in Norway is very impressive.

The building is partly submerged with the restaurant area totally under water.

An incredibly brave design, we love it.

This new airport in Singapore is totally brilliant.

With a massive water feature in the centre of a tropical garden, hotels, shops and joining two existing terminals it’s a feat in engineering and architecture.

When can we go?

Walters Architects are pleased with the progress being made on our 2 new commercial buildings being built in Leicester city centre.

The scheme is for an insurance company after the loss of a single building due to fire. It’s a tight site but we have managed to replace the single building with two new units and increase the over all internal floor area.

It’s a clean and tidy site, all the steel is now in place and the exterior steel cladding should be being installed in the next couple of weeks.
