Yorkshire-based construction company, Henley Stone Specialists, has completed a refurbishment of British luxury fashion flagship store, Burberry.
Yorkshire-based construction company, Henley Stone Specialists, was appointed to assist in the refurbishment of Burberry’s flagship store, with works recently being completed at the prestigious New Bond Street location.
Located in one of the world’s premier luxury shopping destinations, the Burberry flagship store, which is a total of 22,000 sqm2 of high end luxury fashion, has undergone a remarkable contemporary makeover. The work completed re-affirms Burberry’s position as the leading modern British luxury brand, whilst preserving its rich and unique heritage.
Teaming up with the main contractor, Forcia, Henley Stone Specialists enhanced the store’s exterior, with a full natural stone exterior façade re-build.
Henley Stone upheld the store’s minimalist aesthetic by installing Portland stone across the full façade, as well as granite plinths and paving. To attain a refined texture, the stone surfaces underwent a sandblasting process while in manufacture. A fine picked finish was achieved where required on site, using a bush hammer, adding depth and character to the design.
The craftmanship and modifications not only transformed the store’s aesthetic appearance but also created a more inviting visitor experience. The exposed first floor allows consumers to glimpse into the luxury retail setting, complimenting the open-plan interior throughout the store.
Shaun Henley, Founder and Managing Director of Henley Group, commented: “It’s not every day that you get to work in the vibrant hub of luxury retail within the heart of London.
“Our goal was to uphold the architect’s vision by capturing the essence of modern British luxury while also preserving the rich and unique heritage that Burberry holds. It’s a testament to the dedication and craftmanship of our team that we’ve been able to achieve this balance.
“We are also incredibly proud to work alongside Forcia on this project to help create a truly stunning building, that authentically reflects the personality and values of the Burberry brand.”
