Overview

The story of the building provides the clues that inform the conservation strategies and details.

It is clear that the architects, clients and builders have worked very closely together to create a particularly sensitive and beautifully judged renovation.

It is not only in attention to detail that this project excels, but also in the reuse of the original shops and a range of other community functions. The library, exhibition room and main hall all reveal that the building makes a continued and significant contribution to the local community.

This property is viewable only through Invitation to View
