Dixon Jones lands John Lewis redevelopment job in Chelsea
Dixon Jones has been appointed to transform a 1930s John Lewis depot into luxury housing in Chelsea, London
The 4 hectare site on Draycott Avenue (pictured) is a stone’s throw from Dixon Jones’ contentious Exhibition Road public realm scheme which is now nearing completion and also close by to James Dyson’s London headquarters.
A spokesperson for client John Lewis confirmed the appointment and said the company was ‘working in close consultation with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the local community and other interested parties to help prepare the application, in accordance with our core values of partnership, fairness and respect.’
It has yet to be confirmed whether the existing 1930s building by Slater & Moberly Architects would be demolished.
