The scheme for Seven Dials Market will transform the 19th Century Thomas Neal’s Warehouse to provide a 22,000 square foot market and dining space across the ground and basement levels. Split into three core areas, it will deliver a unique mix of produce, food retail, street food and entertainment to meet the needs of Londoners and tourists both day and night.
Drawing on the building’s history, the market will be the capital’s most central food hall, creating a food and entertainment destination hub for the visiting public. KERB’s traders will provide a premium selection of street food across 12 different markets, eight takeaway bars and seven restaurants, which will change throughout the year to bring fresh, new options to choose from.
Stiff + Trevillion’s design is contemporary in style yet rooted in its heritage. The design of the building reflects the property’s heritage, with original features carefully retained and refurbished. Cast iron beams and columns will be left visible, as will the brick arches that are synonymous with historic market spaces.
“We are delighted to be working with KERB to create a vibrant space for the West End’s first covered food market," says Richard Blandy, Director at Stiff + Trevillion. "Highlighting many of the building’s original features, we look to create an inspiring space to meet and enjoy the eclectic array of independent food options.”
Opening in Summer 2019, the market will be run by KERB, who will be operating inside a building for the first time.
