You need to select a CU that has been designed for that. I have installed similar and when done properly the cover fits over nicely. I think the one i used was a MEM, but have a look around cos you are going to need a really nice looking one if there is such a thing :)

As Lenny has pointed out, you could compromise the structural integrity of the wall and the building by doing this. Have you confirmed it's not a supporting wall? You may have to stick a lintel in?

if the house is less than 40 years old, it will probably collapse without fitting a lintel.
