An awe-inspiring shopping experience.
Lees Associates have been involved in the store for 15 years, adding to the exciting and evolving environment which is proven to attract and impress customers.
The quality of detail, finishes and spaces ensure an awe inspiring shopping experience that helps Selfridges to keep pushing the standards for department stores worldwide.
Working with Belgian designer Vincent van Duysen, we completed the worlds largest mens shoe department in this top London destination, consistently voted the Worlds best Department Store.
The shoe department offers every type of gentlemans footware from trainers to bespoke handmade shoes and we have provided a suitable setting for the display of each and incorporated the most fashionable concessions and private shopping facilities.
Lees Associates acted as executive architect, realising Tokyo-based Klein Dytham’s innovative and dynamic Cobella concept salon in Selfridges’ Oxford Street store.
With the emphasis on relaxation, the soft bands of colour and glowing Perspex walls guide one to the heart of the salon. State of the art technology and futuristic design combine with luxurious treatments to provide an unparalleled hairdressing experience. Small consoles at each hair station allow customers to surf the net or watch television, while high-tech chairs massage away tension.
With a number of stakeholders to satisfy, we successfully managed the design and approvals process, before overseeing the delivery on site.
Designed to showcase some of the best menswear available, Lees Associates worked alongside KRD to complete Selfridges new Men’s Superbrands Room.
Taking inspiration from a football pitch, the room finished in high gloss greens, blacks and whites, sets off labels including Alexander McQueen, Dior, YSL, Marc Jacobs, Helmut Lang and more.
Facade and Lighting
The project, undertaken with the help of English Heritage and Westminster City Council, centred upon the restoration of the store’s well-known early 20th century Portland stone facade.
Time had comprehensively ravaged the listed facade with smog and pollution. Lees Associates addressed corrosion problems with the underlying structure using and updated early 19th century technology, the application of cathodic protection (CP). The priority throughout the project was to remain true to the spirit of the structure’s original design and materials.
During the works, the facade was enveloped in the world’s largest photo, by artist Sam Taylor-Wood.
