Retail Architect Case Studies

The Process for Retail Design Architects 

The process begins with a thorough consultation to understand the unique requirements, branding, and objectives of your retail project. During this phase, we also discuss any potential challenges and initiate discussions about obtaining planning permission. 

Once planning permission is secured, our skilled retail architects can start work on the design of your building. Collaborating closely, we develop designs that not only showcase your brand’s identity but also optimise the space for customer flow, functionality, and visual appeal. Our focus is on creating retail spaces that not only attract customers but also provide an immersive and memorable experience. 

With the design approved, our in-house construction team then takes charge, implementing the designs with precision and attention to detail.  

Planning Permission for Retail Design and Build Projects 

Planning permission is a crucial aspect of the retail design process, especially for projects involving shops and shopping centres. Our experienced team of architects specialises in navigating the complexities of local regulations. We work closely with local authorities to secure the necessary approvals, ensuring that the design aligns with zoning and building regulations. This may include considerations for change of use or modifications to existing structures.

Retail Architects FAQs

Creating inclusive and accessible retail spaces is a key consideration in our design philosophy. Our retail design architects incorporate universal design principles to ensure that the spaces are accessible to individuals with diverse abilities. This may include considerations for ramps, elevators, and other features that enhance accessibility. We believe in designing environments that cater to a wide range of customers, fostering inclusivity and providing a positive shopping experience for everyone. 
During the initial consultation, we discuss your financial parameters and work collaboratively to develop a design that aligns with your budget while meeting the requirements and preferences of your project. If our retail architects feel that your project will expand past your budget, we will communicate our suggestions to help you find an ideal solution.  


Whether you need planning permission depends on various factors, including the nature of your project and the existing land use regulations in your location. In many cases, significant alterations, new constructions, or changes of use for retail buildings may require planning permission. However, smaller-scale changes, such as internal alterations, might not always necessitate planning permission.
