Selfridges hires Grafton Architects for makeover project

Grafton Architects proposals for 388-396 Oxford Street

Practice creates new look for store-owned neighbouring shops and offices block

Grafton Architects has been appointed to extend and remodel a 1950s block of shops and offices owned by the Selfridges Group across the road from its flagship London department store.

The practice’s proposals for 388-396 Oxford Street would see the current seven-storey building completely reclad with the addition of an extra level in the process.

Documents supporting the application described the project as part of Selfridges’ commitment to enhancing the setting of the immediate surroundings of its main store – and cited David Chipperfield Architects’ new Duke Street entrance as an example of the high standards it demanded.
