London, Global


Westfield Stratford City is the largest shopping mall in Europe and represents global best practice in retail thinking.

The 1,900,000ft² of retail comprises two major department stores, over 300 individual retail units, restaurants and cafes, cinemas and leisure outlets. A curving glazed roof sits above a three-level retail mall that complements an outdoor boulevard. The area operates 24 hours a day with a vibrant mix of shopping and dining opportunities, supplemented by 5,000 car parking spaces and office space.

The centre provides a prestigious gateway to the London 2012 Olympic Park. The spaces connect with the existing Stratford Town Centre and major transport links. It is a key component of the regeneration of this significant area in East London.

Westfield appointed Buchan to provide Executive Architectural Services supporting Westfield’s design team. We acted as lead design consultant and delivered services from development of the scheme design, through to construction support services and final contract completion.
