• OUr First Completed Shopfront

21-31 Commerce Street

Sitiated on the same street as the former home of Thomas Blake Glover, these early 20th century (probably 1930’s) blocks of terraced houses are recessed from adjoining properties, with gardens originally to the front. Two of these recessed properties have twin traditional shopfronts projected from the older house onto its original front garden.

The Project

Focus was on the projecting shopfront elements. The repair and replacement of the flat roof finishes and rainwater goods to protect the building. The repair of the traditional shop frontages and replacement of the signage with hand painted fascia boards, to emphasis these twin shop elements and improve the street scene.
