Project details

The Lexicon is a next generation shopping and leisure destination. A vibrant mix of brands and experiences providing a new social and cultural heart for Bracknell, offering soft green landscaped spaces for entertainment and events, and a high quality mix of shops and leisure venues connected in a pedestrian-friendly environment.

There are six blocks that constitute the Northern Retail Quarter. The scheme comprises two department stores, retail units, restaurants and cafes, 10 screen cinema, multi storey car park and 92 apartments defining a series of new covered and open streets and civic squares as part of the 60,000 sqm scheme town centre regeneration.

The project has been developed utilising a rich warm palette of materials including brick, timber, feature perforated aluminium, coloured glazing, gold/silver coloured copper cladding and green walls along with elegant street covers and canopies. A key concept for the scheme and public realm design has been ‘the greening of Bracknell’ to transform the character of the existing town.

BDP has already completed a Waitrose supermarket in 2011 which forms one of the anchors for the scheme.

The transformation will create and exciting new social and cultural heart for the area, with the aim to make Bracknell one of the best places to live and work in the Thames Valley.
