SBa have been commissioned to restore and reimagine the external envelope of Peter Jones & Partners, the Grade II-listed shop of the John Lewis Partnership in Sloane Square.
The building stitches together elements from different periods and of diverse character into a single city block. From its position at the heart of the Cadogan estate, it bears witness to over a century of the history of modern retail, charting the urban changes that have taken place in the area.
In collaboration with heritage consultants Purcell, we are developing a strategy for refurbishing and enhancing the store’s historic attributes to reveal and express the qualities and heritage of its architectural components, using the facade as a canvas for responding to the surroundings. The plans for the external envelope will be submitted for planning approval by the end of the year.
