Mountford Pigott was invited by Hermes to refurbish and update the Tandem Centre originally designed by the practice as one of the first out-of-town fashion parks in 1995.
This provided the opportunity to rethink part of the original design strategy which involved the creation of a "street" around the perimeter of the retail units.
As a result, the park has been enlivened by the introduction of a dramatic high level wave canopy which also allowed improvements to the lighting and highly prominent retailer signage. Further improvements included updating the street furniture and making alterations to the hard landscaping to improve visibility into the scheme.
Mountford Pigott also provided new graphics and signage for the park, and continues to develop ideas and extensions for the new owners LaSalle Investment Management.
