Goldsmiths - Newcastle

Retail

Navigating real-world restrictions without creative limit

A highly protected, listed building is the natural choice for a branch of Goldsmiths. It does, however, make a full interior refit tricky. Our long-standing partnerships with listed building officers came in handy. The team was able to both meet client needs and get full planning approval. Careful cleaning – and some added suede – helped revive the existing units. We took out unlisted, worn-out features and replaced them with tasteful new ones. Bespoke furniture, a dedicated fully-equipped repair area and a gorgeous chandelier completed the look. The building is now a flagship Goldsmiths location.
