The first phase of a major redesign and refurbishment of Selfridges’ Accessories Hall opened to the public today. The Accessories Hall occupies the ground floor of the classic East building and a later addition to the rear known as the SWOD (Somerset, Wigmore, Orchard and Duke Street) building. The redesign will give a consistent identity to these two spaces while a new entrance hall, the Somerset Street Link Building, will be inserted in between, connecting them together. The first phase sees the opening of the SWOD building section. The full project, including the Somerset Street Link Building, is due to open in 2018.
