Walcot House, Bath

CMS were engaged in 2017 to provide Architectural services to an entrepreneurial couple for the design and construction of a new social hub and installation space above a new cocktail bar, tapas restaurant, and live music venue in an old Grade II listed bakery in Bath.

The venue now provides a versatile space for uses ranging from spin classes and yoga to sourdough cooking classes and local live music acts.

Works involved stripping back the previous use to the original building fabric, then employing a light touch approach to the fit out minimising any impact on the heritage value of the building.

The project is an ongoing involvement, with plans to expand into adjoining spaces and create rooftop areas.
