This retail store for Zara in the Westminster Conservation Area occupies an L-shaped site which wraps around a Grade II listed corner building designed by Ronald Ward in the 1950s. The practice refurbished the listed Ward building and designed a new retail building in a suitably streamlined Modernist style which reinterprets the original in the expression of key details. The section of the new building connects to the listed element in a way that mediates the differences in the old and new floorplate levels. The project's sensitively stylish design required careful construction phasing on this tight and prominent site.
