Shop Front Refurbishment

Sheinman Opticians, Abington Street, Northampton

Our brief was to reinvigorate the building frontage to emphasise the principles of the Sheinman Opticians profile. The existing grey facade was replaced with a modern frontage which unifies the upper and lower stages of the building. At street level inclined window frames and a modern twist on a rusticated facade with projecting, stepped and a contrasting coloured ‘Trespa’ cladding, bold illuminated lettering and expanded aluminium lath vertical banners complement the redecorated upper levels where the original architectural detailing is emphasised. Internal alterations increased the ground floor dispensing area. This mixture of the modern and the traditional creates a new approach to shop front design in this part of Northampton.
