Contract value: undisclosed 
GIA: 359m2
     

This project extends the capacity of the Number Four restaurant into a grade II listed building on the street behind, bringing it back into use by creating a bridge over an external fire escape. The roof, mezzanine and external walls are supported by a glulam structure. External walls are clad in black-stained pine and internal walls in plywood. The combination of old and new gives this project its identity and provides a sustainable solution for heritage assets in the town, as well  as offering a contemporary architectural experience.
