Peter Jones

London, UK. 2004

The multiple award-winning phased refurbishment and reprogramming of John Lewis Partnership’s flagship department store, Peter Jones, revitalised this Grade II* listed Modernist building designed principally by William Crabtree in the early 1930s – a much-loved landmark facing London’s Sloane Square. John McAslan + Partners’ careful planning of the three-phase scheme, which was completed in 2004, allowed the iconic store to remain open and operational throughout the major works. These included the creation of a large central atrium and circulation heart space, an homage to Crabtree’s unrealised original intention. Other gains included the insertion of state-of-the-art services, improved operational facilities, significantly reduced energy use, and the restoration of the building’s distinctive elevations.   


'The acclaim continues to come from all quarters  and most importantly, of course, from our customers.'

Sir Stuart Hampson, Former Chairman, Peter Jones
