Retail has evolved from a necessary task to a lifestyle statement. Department stores contain high quality restaurants; restaurants sell books and art; and generations increasingly define themselves by brand. Add to this the growing demand for sustainable and holistic communities where residential, retail and commercial interests co-exist, today’s retail developments are central to the way we live. Future trends in retail design are being dictated by two distinct drivers that are effectively changing the retail landscape – changing channels of distribution and the rise of online shopping. PLT has extensive experience and expertise in retail design - from niche boutique projects for high profile brands, to innovative high-density developments where communities and businesses work in harmony - our design both predicts and responds to future consumer trends.
