Listed and Historic Buildings

We have worked on various conservation projects with William Miller Architects of Cottenham. One project in Over involved a 17th Century Queen Anne brick house. The owners of this listed building wanted to convert former craft workshops into high tech offices.The buildings which were to be converted were once part of the yard to the house and therefore were regarded as listed buildings. A sympathetic and modern construction enabled the creation of 3 cellular offices with meeting rooms and kitchen facilities.
