A historical landmark is reborn with the redevelopment of Grade II listed department store into office and retail space

Clapham Junction's iconic Arding & Hobbs building has undergone an extensive transformation from a grade II listed department store to a contemporary mix of retail, leisure and workspace.

The redevelopment of the site involved repairs to the existing structure and partial demolition of some internal structural elements, to refurbish and develop the space, as well as a modern extension on the roof, set back from the existing façade.

Spanning seven floors, Stiff + Trevillion’s reimagination of this icon celebrates its unique history whilst equipping its tenants for modern-day work, rest and play.

Situated in the heart of Clapham Junction, Arding & Hobbs benefits from the energy of a town-centre location, minutes from the epicentre of one of the world’s great metropolises.

exigere is best in class. Big enough to handle any project. Small enough to provide a high quality, client-focused service. exigere is an integral part of the project team from the acquisition of the asset and throughout every stage of its development cycle.
