Beretta, St James Street, London

 

The Beretta Gallery stands on the corner of St James Street and Jermyn Street in the centre of the West End. The building was fully refurbished and converted from a Wine Merchant’s into the first Beretta Store, or Gallery as Beretta prefer it to be known, in the UK.

Externally, the stonework and windows were cleaned and refurbished. Internally, the Gallery was completely refurbished and refitted.

The Gallery boasted many original period features and, where possible, the Architect, Mr Barry Paterson, has combined these features with the new cabinets and services pertinent to a luxury brand.

Desertoak completed the work to a very fast-track programme, ensuring that the Gallery was open on time for Christmas trading.

Since the completion of the Gallery, we have also completed a concession for Beretta within Harrods and have continued to maintain the Gallery on St James Street.

A view of part of the impressive Gun Room on the Second Floor, which is fully protected with a Police backed security system.

Many of the period features remain in the building, including the plaster mouldings to the ceilings, wall panelling and fire places, all which were fully restored during the project.

Another view of the Gun Room with its bespoke Italian Gun Cabinets.

TThe Gun Room itself is situated on the Second Floor, however, there are also some guns located in display cabinets/Vitrines on the First Floor.

The original screens make an ideal back drop to the new displays, all of which were painstakingly re-polished as part of the refurbishment.  The impressive Ground Floor and entrance to St James Street shows some fantastic original details.
