Lyons Sleeman Hoare Architects designed Pioneer Square in Bicester incorporating a foodstore, multiplex cinema, retail units, library and hotel






Since its foundation the practice has had a long association with town-centre retail schemes. With a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise in the building needs and urban-design fundamentals required for a successful retail-led scheme, we have delivered a large number of highly successful developments and planning consents.


Working from individual buildings to large shopping centres, our town-centre retail work covers regeneration, mixed-use, new and refurbished/extended shopping centres, high street, supermarkets and anchor stores.


Retail in Historic Places

We have extensive experience working in historic towns, cities and with Listed buildings. Many of our best known projects have successfully created contemporary retailing environments in sensitive locations and we maintain a keen design interest in this type of work across all of our sectors.


From Covent Garden to the Champs Elysées, we are proud to deliver successful, award winning retail and enjoyable places.
