Site was home to Marquee Club in the 1960s

ISG has completed work refurbishing a 1980s building on London’s Oxford Street into the new headquarters for retailer Sports Direct.

The site, called Academy House, was an art house cinema in the 1930s and once home to the Marquee Club in the 1960s where the Rolling Stones and the Who played.

John Robertson Architects worked on the eight-storey scheme, which is split between office and retail and includes a roof terrace, teaming up with London artist Catherine Bertola and the Sculpture Factory to design an Art Deco-inspired entrance.

Others to work on the job, which has an internal floor area of 5,300 sq m, included QS Gleeds, structural engineer Lucking & Clarke and planning consultant DP9.
