Market Halls

Market Halls

View Project

Spread across 3 levels of the former BHS store is the vibrant and stylish indoor food market at the heart of Oxford Street. One of the latest sites following the success of Fulham and Victoria Market Halls. The spacious hub is the perfect meeting spot for friends looking to satisfy their eclectic tastebuds and enrich their senses with good music, innovative industrial design and an overall relaxed vibrant atmosphere over food and drink. 

Collaborating on this project with Faulkner Brown Architects, the lighting design highlights the bones of the building, rough concrete textures, exposed ceilings and signage lighting as varied as the food on offer!

Designing on a low budget focused on preserving and utilising the existing features and investing in decorative elements to make each key area a destination point with a special touch.

The entrance draws you in with a feature neon signage, bespoke wall art, dark metallic finishes, contrasting lighting and a double storey staircase graphically lined with integrated step lighting leading you to a bright first floor. The heart of Market Halls is bursting with flavours from across the world, serving freshly prepared street food in a maze of food kiosks where you can find your favourite tastes and discover something new. Order at the bar and grab a table to catch up with your friends surrounded by the pleasant buzz of the lively atmosphere. Playing with the contrast of light and darkness to draw pools of light using track lighting is the success of the multifunctionality of the open plan. A lighting approach that is as flexible as the use of the space and ready to be adapted as the layouts shifts to accommodate the change in use.

Moving up to the top floor, immerse yourself in a dark intimate cocktail area, inspired by mid-century boudoir elegance with dim lighting, floating greenery and soft furniture to unwind after a long day in the chaotic city. Step out onto the terrace just to realise you’re face to face with John Lewis holding a cocktail in your hand as you watch the shopaholics in their jungle!
