The practice’s relationship with Southern funeral directors, AB Walker goes from strength to strength, with the Reading office briefed to provide designs for a new branch in Thatcham. This is in the form of a shop unit in the High Street and comprises 200 sq metres. It follows several other design projects which The Harris Partnership has carried out for the fifth generation family business. These include a major refurbishment of their headquarters in Reading, and the development of new premises in Bracknell, Wokingham, and Henley.
Matt Andrews, Architect comments: “It’s always very encouraging when we are commissioned on repeat business. Hopefully, we have proved that we are very mindful of making the internal lay-out of each branch work very well so that their clients are hosted in a private and appropriate environment.”
