Harrods Furniture Depository

Harrods Furniture Depository

The Harrods Furniture Depository buildings flank the South bank of the River Thames near Hammersmith Bridge in Barnes, London SW13. The Harrods Depository was built on the site of an old soap factory in 1894 as a storage centre for the larger items that could not be taken into Knightsbridge to the world famous Harrods department store. The present salmon-pink terracotta clad buildings date from 1914. The architect was W G Hunt.[1]

The buildings, which are Grade II listed,[1] are no longer owned by Harrods but retain many of its original external features. In 2000 the conversion to a residential estate was completed, consisting of 250 townhouses and penthouse suites known as "Harrods Village". William Hunt Mansions, the main river front building, is a key marker post on the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race between Putney Bridge and Chiswick Bridge.[2]
