A little light shopping

— July 12th, 2010

This total rebuild of a retail unit shopfront and interior in the exclusive shopping destination of King’s Road is nearing Completion. The space has already been let to a modern furniture retailer.

The building is neighbour to another Dinwiddie MacLaren Architects’ project completed last year. This double unit is now occupied by John Cullen Lighting. Again, this building was subject to a total re-construction with a completely new street façade and shopfronts to comply with the requirements of the Conservation Area.

Both buildings have been “opened-up” to physically and visually link the ground and lower ground floors. Of the original construction, only the party walls were retained, and the new structure, with highly insulated walls & roofs, form the new enclosure. Large rooflights installed to the rear of the buildings provide extensive natural daylight.
