Retail | HKR Architects


Shopping streets and centres define the visual and social character of our towns and cities. Today retail-led regeneration provides stimulating, entertaining, and engaging places to be.

City centre retail development stands or falls by the strength of the connections it makes to existing prime shopping areas. The key to this success is the ability to create the perception
that the whole retail map is expanded, rather than a new tributary being made off the existing pedestrian flow.

At HKR the retail team is highly skilled at making these connections. The skill lies in our ability to take as little prime property as necessary so that all the redeveloped land will benefit from the uplift and intensification of the new development.
