Selfridges is one of the most iconic beaux-arts style shopping malls in the centre of London built 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.
The refurbishment of the external flooring was to create a unique pattern developed by David Chipperfield Architects. The contrast pattern was possible thanks to two different Portuguese limestones Moleanos and Azul Valverde. This modern contrast creates an astonishing look for this iconic building where thousands of people go by every day.
