British architect David Chipperfield’s plans to renovate Selfridges’ flagship London store on Oxford Street have just been approved by Westminster City Council. The project is set to include a new double-height entrance on Duke Street with alterations being made to the shopfronts and a huge redevelopment of the already expansive accessories space.
It was over a year ago since David was appointed for the redevelopment for the iconic neoclassical building. As part of a £300 million investment, the changes are set to create visual links to the listed east building with the Somerset, Wigmore, Orchard and Duke building to the north.
