This flagship store for booksellers Foyles at 107 Charing Cross Road in London is the largest bookstore to be built in the UK this century. It is located just metres from their old store which was its home for more than 100 years.
Foyles have a range of over 200,000 different titles on four miles (6.5km) of shelves. With 37,000 square feet of flexible retail space, spread across eight shop floors in the two halves of the four storey building, the interior layout allows for easy navigation.
By enlarging the existing central light-well, an atrium is created which floods daylight into the centre of the building. The whole bookshop is easily accessible, with only one short flight of stairs required to connect between each floor section
