David Chipperfield Architects
Selfridges is a shopping mall in the centre of London, beaux-arts style building on Oxford Street. It is the second largest shop in the UK (after Harrods) and opened in 1909. By the end of the 1930s, Selfridges had expanded into a new building, built in a sober art deco style.
A unique and distinctive pattern created by the David Chipperfield Architects gave charm to the entrance of the Selfridges. The contrast generated by the two Portuguese Limestones creates a modern new look to an important place of passage for thousands of visitors daily into the emblematic building.
