Uniqlo’s latest store is located in a historic Grade II listed building, featuring a stunning open courtyard and glass atrium with entrances on both Long Acre and Floral Street. The project involved fitting out 15,600 square feet of space across three levels that have been designed to offer an immersive and relaxed shopping environment and feature Uniqlo UK’s first-ever in-store café.

The project had a number of challenges to ensure it met building regulations while respecting the historical significance of the listed structure. Additionally, there was a major change in floor levels in the middle of the store due to the street levels being different on the two entrance facades presenting a challenge for wheelchair users.

With our expertise in Listed Buildings, we were able to navigate the design team through the compliance requirements and still preserve the building’s character, enabling the store to open as planned in April 2023.

“Very thorough and great input upfront to inform the design so we could build it right first time. Also very helpful in resolving where the client’s design conflicted with requirements of regulation, so we could keep everybody happy.”

Bryony Levermore, UC Build
