The shell and Georgian listed facade of 207 Bath Street, formerly occupied by a clothes retail business, was in poor repair and required substantial refurbishment. The new self-advertising external facade, a glazed box structure, allowed transparency to be maintained through the faade to new internal sandstone columns aligned with the heavy pilasters of the upper faade. Sandblasted to contain and filter colour change floor lighting, illuminating the box in the evening, the structure sympathetically connects to the existing building creating an interesting juxtaposition between the solidity of the stone built existing materials and the sharp clean edges of the new extension. The ground level, daytime use, and lower ground level, evening use, were designed to contrast in colour, texture and atmosphere to reflect likely user groups.

Client comment: "Aim created two areas of distinct and contrasting character on both levels as well as a clever glass lantern porch that advertises the bar the length of Bath Street 24-7".
