The Tattie Kirk
The Tattie Kirk is a very historic building in Falkirk’s town centre. Originally build as a octagonal church the building was deconsecrated in the 19th century and had a variety of semi-industrial and retail uses. Arka initially became involved in the building when it was in a somewhat derelict state assisting the owner to create the boutique salon Zuri and a 2 bedroomed flat on the first floor. In 2017 we returned to complete the task in the conversion of the remaining first floor area and attic space into our own offices. The building is now completely restored and is an excellent example of how old buildings can be re-purposed: a truly mixed use building with commercial, retail and residential all under one roof.
