Hotel, Retail + Leisure Category
Floral Street has been shortlisted for the Hotel, Leisure and Retail category in the AJ Retrofit Awards. This project, designed by Brimelow McSweeney Architects was a vast retail scheme in Covent Garden. The 22,000 sq.ft building comprised 4,000 sq.ft worth of office space on the upper floor levels.
This project was part of a wider scheme to transform Floral Street into a bustling main shopping thoroughfare. The project involved the conversion of an old spa into two large retail units, this space included a new shopfront and the restoration of a listed building.
The shopfront saw various large aspects of glazing including a new double opening entrance door. The majority of the glazing was framed with steel to create an industrial aesthetic to the shop front. The steel entrance doors create an eye-catching feature as customers walk through the entrance to the shop.
