New Bond Street, London
Time Products specialise in bespoke and luxury watches and time pieces. Their Mayfair location, ‘Marcus’, was established over six floors of a Grade 2 listed building on New Bond Street, each floor allocated to a different use. The need for sensitive integration of new elements into the existing fabric led to the concept of separating the modern interventions from their surroundings both physically and visually; thus ‘historic memory’ of the internal space is retained alongside highly contemporary insertions. The tension between new and old is expressed by the selection of materials, the transparency and translucency of the new balancing the solidity of the original late 19C fabric.
