Bosideng Store, Mayfair, London

Date Built
South Molton Street
This new building on South Molton Street in London's Mayfair district is home to the Chinese retailer Bosideng.  It occupies a narrow triangular site, once home to a pub, at the confluence of South Molton Street and Davies Street as they both feed into Oxford Street.  The configuration of the plot dictates a building of this shape resulting in London's version of the Flatiron Building in New York.

In addition to this high-end mens' clothing store, the building is also home to office space and penthouse residential accommodation. Apparently the architects delivered the store in less than 9 months and in time for the 2012 Olympics.  The building's facade is made up of glass and terracotta.
