Niven were asked by the client to undertake the conversion of an existing seaside amusement arcade into a boutique bowling alley.
Despite the size of the project, the design had to incorporate a number of complex structural and planning solutions due to the building being both listed and in a Conservation Area. This meant it had to be sympathetically designed to meet the local surroundings as well as satisfy the current market demands for the new business.
Niven were also commissioned to develop the interior design schemes, which have been based on the stylish, upscale and quirky bars of New York and San Francisco.
