Grosvenor unveils the design and interiors brands expanding into Newson’s Yard, a new sustainable design hub housed in a re-imagined historic timber yard, as the property owner supports the growth of the renowned Pimlico Road Design District in London’s Belgravia.

Designed by Stiff + Trevillion, the innovative redevelopment of the 1840s buildings celebrates their heritage and character while providing five new retail units, two food and beverage spaces and nine homes. Nestled around a dramatic double height covered courtyard which will double as an events space, the scheme creates a new local public space and a focal point for the Pimlico Road Design District.

Opening in spring 2023, this world class retail design space will soon be home to furniture craftspeople & Objects, handmade lacquer furniture and accessories brand The Lacquer Company, and 20th-century Nordic design gallery Modernity. Bespoke kitchen makers Plain English and famed designer Nina Campbell will also open flagship boutiques in Newson’s Yard.


In line with Grosvenor’s aim to partner with sustainable businesses, all the brands have signed a green lease ensuring properties will be powered by renewable energy and enabling collaboration to reduce carbon and improve local air quality through consolidated deliveries and waste collections.

Jane Macdiarmid, Associate Director of Belgravia, Grosvenor, commented“For some time we’ve been working to find a way to enable the Pimlico Road Design District to grow but keep that intimate neighbourhood feel the area is famous for.

“From established names to emerging talent, the demand for space in Newson’s Yard has proven that this meticulously designed scheme gets that balance just right. We couldn’t ask for a more exceptional line up of designers to launch Newson’s Yard and look forward to working with all these businesses to support the success and sustainability of the area.”

Tony Niblock, Co-Founder of Plain English, said:

“We are excited to have made the decision to move Plain English London to Pimlico Road joining a community of like-minded creative businesses in 2023. We had actually looked at Pimlico Road in the past, but the scale of Newson’s Yard and the development in particular ticked all the boxes for us.”
