House of Fraser has unveiled its new store design in Bristol ahead of opening next year.

The department store will open a 170,000 sq ft store at Land Securities and Hammerson’s 1m sq ft Cabot Circus scheme.

The four-storey £22m store, designed by architects Stanton Williams, was handed over to the department store chain last night. The store includes cast bronze panels, a three-storey suspended glazed opening, a display window at ground floor the size of two double decker buses and a light box with large-scale projected illuminations.

House of Fraser will now work on the fit out of the store ready for opening in autumn 2008.

House of Fraser is joined by Harvey Nichols as the other anchor in the scheme.

DTZ and Lunson Mitchenall are letting agents and architect Chapman Taylor is masterplanners.
