The ornate Grade II-listed Pantechnicon building on Motcomb Street is one of Belgravia’s most famous landmarks - designed in the Greek Revival style with Doric columns facing the street. First opened in 1830 as a gallery, furniture shop and storage facility, its grand neo-classical façade was the only part of the building not destroyed in a fire in 1874. The five-floor Pantechnicon building (from the people behind The Lighterman and Percy & Founders) has been inspired by Japanese and Nordic cultures.
The space includes several bars, restaurants - using traditional Japanese and Nordic cooking methods - and a roof terrace (with a fully retractable electric glass roof and Nordic cocktail menu) amid greenery designed by Finnish garden designer Taina Suonio - and retail spaces showcasing brands all from Japan or the Nordic countries.
