Classic Eyes

Refurbishments + Alterations

Bournemouth, Dorset

Footprint Architects was commissioned to develop a scheme to modernise this opticians and retail unit in the heart of Bournemouth Town Centre.

Formally a squash court, the concept of the design was to open up the original building volume to the street frontage creating a series of ‘retail bridges’ and a procession through the space to the private consultation rooms which were reconfigured and positioned to the rear.

A full construction drawing package was developed and the fit-out was completed over a 4 week period in the Autumn of 2014.
