William Saunders headed a multi-disciplinary team and provided the Project Management, QS, Architectural and Principal Designer roles on this new Flannels store in York.
Set within the conservation area in York, the treatment of the store frontage had to be carefully considered in order to meet the demands of development in the conservation area.
Luxury British multi-brand retailer Flannels, which is part of the Sports Direct International empire, sells men’s, women’s and children’s luxury clothing, shoes and accessories. The 20,000 square foot store has been created on two levels in a section of the old BHS department store, which has lain empty since it closed down in 2016.
The opening of the York store is part of a massive expansion of Flannels by Sports Direct across the country.
The store was refurbished over a four-month period and another larger section of the former BHS building, measuring around 36,000 square feet, has now also opened as a new concept Sports Direct and USC fashion store.
