New waterfront retail and restaurant units

Conversion of basic shell to retail and hospitality spaces, full fit-out with improved access and accoustic treatment.

Originally built as a shell for a large waterfront restaurant, it became apparent that smaller units would be a better proposition and Stowe Building Contractors was commissioned to divide and fit-out the shell as restaurant and retail spaces with holiday accommodation on the 1st floor.

Acoustic work was an important aspect of the project to reduce the transmission of sound between the ground-floor units and the holiday apartments. For the restaurant, we formed kitchen and cellar spaces and fitted out a large dining area. We also created a ramp with stainless steel banister and glass balustrade to improve access. The retail space required storage and washroom facilities as well as a showroom.

The restaurant trades as ‘The Boathouse’ and the retail space is occupied by the stylish interior furnishings company ‘The Happiness Store’. Both are well worth a visit!
