Discover inspirational retail architecture

Built for the best customer experience, these retail building designs go above and beyond to create the perfect setting for shopping and entertainment

Britain’s highstreets, shopping centres and retail parks have been rapidly evolving over the past 50 years, shaped by consumer trends like online shopping and local gentrification. But the challenges facing a post-pandemic retail landscape only highlight the need for beautiful, dynamic spaces that consumers want to visit and experience.

Architects across the UK are rising to this challenge, delivering functional retailscapes, new developments and renovations that are transforming how Britons shop, relax and socialise. Discover how facade designs can breathe new life into old high street buildings; why paving can be a vital part of creating a cohesive retailscape; and how town centres have been transformed with new spaces for businesses to thrive.
