Tom Dixon was awarded Best Retail Design for the Habitat Regent Street Store at the Conde Nast Traveller Innovation and Design Awards on April 23, 2007.
The building has had a remarkable lifespan, starting as a meat market, later transformed into a 19th century Art Gallery and then re-built and remodeled in the early 20th century to the 'New Gallery' cinema. In the 1950's it was converted to the 'Seventh Day Adventist Church'. After remaining empty for a while, Habitat took over the space and Tom Dixon has been involved with the project at every stage, from the interior restoration to the fittings and design of the shop.
