Victoria Gate sits on Eastgate, an Art Deco boulevard designed by Reginald Blomfield to mimic London’s Regent Street. Hence Acme’s relief-built brick and terracotta facade, and reconstituted stone palisades that rise to form a diagrid. Corten steel panels surround the bulges of the top floor, which houses restaurants.
John Lewis is Victoria Gate’s anchor tenant.
The interiors of the arcades are inspired by the Victorian tradition through the use of curved glass and patterned stone floors, based on Leeds’s woolen herringbone cloth.
The design of Victoria Gate pendants has been developed following the principles of the arcades design language with a reference to the iconic Yorkshire Rose.
Matter of Stuff collaborated with Acme to manufacture the pendants for John Lewis at Victoria Gate.
