Acne Store

Post Image

Location: 14 Dover Street, Mayfair, London

Client: Acne, Resam

Project Year: 2010

Cost:

<p>Gort Scott collaborated with a top Swedish fashion brand, Acne, on their first UK store, in London’s Mayfair district. The store is a 5 storey development with 4 floors of retail.</p><p>Gort Scott led the design team on the extension and complete remodelling of the original 3 storey Georgian townhouse. In Mayfair’s strict conservation area, planning was achieved for extension by a full storey at roof level, and by an additional storey in the basement. The rear of the property has also been extended.</p><p> The challenge was to turn a traditionally-planned, split level property on a narrow site into usable retail space that works across 4 floors, whilst retaining a sense of the original proportions of the rooms and adhering to contemporary building regulations. The interior layout and finishes are contemporary, and the layout as geometrically simple as possible. The rooflit stair forms a special feature at the rear of the building.</p><p>Gort Scott has also undertaken a similar project for the neighbouring property, which recently received planning consent.</p>
