John Lewis/Waitrose Store, Stratford, London

Crispin Wride
Date Built
Westfield Stratford City Mall
The John Lewis store in Stratford is the centrepiece of the huge Westfield Mall, built adjacent to the 2012 Summer Olympic Park.  The shopping centre and the Olympic Park were built on brownfield land as important elements in the regeneration of this part of the borough of Newham in East London.

Designed by the architect Crispin Wride this 240,000 sq m building ranges over four floors and cost £35m.  John Lewis say on their website that,  " ... its main feature is a distinctive glazed prow. ....

The glazed facade will showcase a ceramic, circular pattern, designed to symbolise the circle of regeneration in Stratford enabled by the Westfield development and partners working towards London 2012 and its legacy. The prow section will house two restaurants, including the Place to Eat and Espresso Bar, and has views into the Westfield Stratford City mall."

The ground floor of the building is occupied by a Waitrose store.
