Extension and remodelling of commercial premises
Colin Simpson Optometrist, Muirhead, North Lanarkshire
This local independent optometry practice had been operating from their premises in Muirhead for over thirty years and were keen to revamp their space to bring it up to date and make the most of their prime location on the main street. With their treatment rooms and shop area spread across two buildings there was definitely scope to open up the space and create something really special.
We collaborated with local builder McEwan Osborne and the team at Simpsons to rationalise the space while ensuring business requirements would be met in the new premises.
Opening up the two linked buildings was the first step to unifying the spaces. Adding the extension to the cottage style building increased the street presence of the business and established a new entrance and reception area creating more space for frame displays and giving customers the space to browse in comfort.
