Sofa.com - Burrell St

Retail

Roomy first-class seating, available to all

The railway arches on Burrell Street date back close to two centuries, and are subject to architectural protection. Network Rail did some of the legwork for us, carefully stripping out the area so we could create Sofa.com’s two-level retail space. Restrictions and a lack of natural light meant the layout and design needed very careful planning. We let the original brickwork become a quirky backdrop for the ground floor and mezzanine. Many of the fixtures and fittings are custom-made for the space, and we enhanced the existing balustrades with intricate wrought iron.
