Male Mode was never intended as an online platform for architectural feats but when I got wind of Burberry’s new quintessentially British abode I could all but resist posting these terrifically sleek images. The move was intended to increase efficiency by uniting staff under the one, albeit extravagant, roof. That roof is, of course, that of Horseferry House, which has been dubbed the new global HQ of Burberry.

And it’s all a tad grand, totalling 160,000 sq ft. over eight floors the gargantuan construction houses show rooms and office space and the features from the 1930s building are – thankfully – still apparent. Creative Director Christopher Bailey led the re-design – no surprises with the successful outcome, then. Am smitten with the bright white space accented with the rich chocolate brown fixtures. Note to self, in years to come Burberry is to receive the first CV…

    I was under the impression that Burberry were in serious financial trouble?? laying off people left, right and centre? this certainly doesn’t imply that they’re going broke…

    Absolutely stunning. I remember one of my friends mentioning this in her architecture presentation.[K]
