Overview

Westfield London, the pioneering shopping and leisure destination, opened in W12 on October 30th 2008.

- It took 13 million man-hours to build
- Cost £1.7bn
- Construction used enough concrete to fill 117 Olympic swimming pools
- There are 96 escalators

Designed to convey the intriguing interplay between water and light, the most striking feature is the undulating glass roof, which is made up of thousands of solid and clear panels. These have been carefully positioned to maximise natural light as the sun moves throughout the day, creating a spacious, airy environment wherever you happen to be.

A central Atrium the size of a football pitch, 16-metre wide malls fashioned from marble with decorative swirls of granite and an exclusive, boutique-style enclave devoted to luxury brands, all combine to create a truly captivating experience.

The Village has been created by leading US architects Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard, known for their award-winning 'Top of the Rock' observation deck atop New York's Rockefeller Centre, while The Balcony, a dramatic lounge-style dining area is the creation of highly respected London designers Softroom.
