Project Brief

Orion Developments appointed W. Stirland with the alterations and refurbishment of The Butter Market in Chichester.

The Butter Market, originally known as Market House, was built to a design by John Nash in 1807. From that year it was illegal to sell any fresh food except in the Butter Market. A second storey was added in 1900 and at one time housed Chichester Art School. It is now an arcade of shops.
