Masons Scaffolding Louis Vuitton display New Bond Street

A new façade display support scaffold has been constructed by the Masons Scaffolding team, to announce the re-opening of Louis Vuitton’s flagship store on New Bond Street, in London.

The very exacting and complex drilled scaffold framing configuration was completed for Castletech Group. Masons Scaffolding carried out all internal and external scaffolding throughout – often providing out-of-hours services to meet a very tight programme.

This included the installation of birdcages, temporary roofs, suspended cantilevers, beamed loading areas, hoarding scaffolding (plus shrink wrap) and staircases, to name a few. The new structure was erected using precise measurements and angles to accommodate pre-engineered display using string lines and more.

Returning to its original location at 17-20 New Bond Street, following its relocation to an address further along the street, the store will open its doors on 24th October to reveal an opulent upgrade.

Peter Marino, the architect who orchestrated the makeover, has spent the past 50 years reinvigorating upscale retail spaces, and can be credited to every Louis Vuitton store in existence. In addition to the new façade, the luxury store will unveil a double helix staircase, artwork by James Turrell and polished limestone detailing.
