Retail Units Dublin Road, Belfast
Situated just outside the Belfast City Centre on the vibrant Dublin Road, this project included the redevelopment and expansion of 2 existing ground floor retail units.
The original front site layout incorporated a hard-landscaped pedestrian area between the public footpath and existing building façade. It was proposed to extend the lower level retail accommodation into this area, increasing retail floor space, and improving access to the space. The building was also designed to complement & not detract from the upper floor residential spaces.
Construction included the use of sandstone façade panels together with new full-height aluminium shop-front glazing. Entrances to the units were emphasised by the introduction of frameless glazed canopies. Internally the shell accommodation was modified to suit the specific requirements for a major food retailer.
