When we heard that the new Victoria Gate shopping centre was opening in Leeds in October, we had to check it out!

Designed by architects ACME, they took inspiration from the old shopping arcade’s merchandising & textile heritage.  The outstanding building is home to an incredible five storey John Lewis flagship store and 42,000 square metres of premium and leading retail and leisure brands such as And Other Stories, Anthropologie, Hackett, Tommy Hilfigher, Aspinal of London, Cau and Le Pain Quotidian to name but a few.

We particularly love the mix of concrete, white terracotta, red brick and the diamond shape theme used across the whole concept.
