Our first project was the Basil Street Escalator Hall, where we completed a full interior fit-out, restoring the original Edwardian staircase and combining it with 16 new escalators. Next we took on Superbrands, the luxury womenswear department that unites a variety of exclusive concession boutiques. We followed up these projects with the Grand Entrance Hall on Hans Crescent and our recently completed restoration of the iconic Harrods facades. Throughout our relationship with Harrods, we’ve also completed various feasibility studies and competition bids. Now ten years on from the Basil Street Escalator Hall, we’re continuing to work on projects that will help shape the future of Harrods.
Each project has been an opportunity for us to explore Harrods' past, and we’ve taken great pleasure in uncovering architectural and cultural details that speak to the history of this premier retailer. We’ve liaised closely with consultants and experts over the years to establish clear design narratives that integrate Harrods’ heritage and values into its built fabric. Our bespoke solutions inform the store’s evolving legacy, maintaining the sense of quality and tradition that defines the Harrods brand.Related
