Number of times per year the graffiti wall has to be repainted
Number of years a recording studio has been on the site
The most famous recording studio in the world.
The new shop at the world’s oldest and most famous purpose built recording studio in the world takes its design inspiration from Abbey Road’s Studio 2 – famously the home of landmark recordings by The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
Shoppers enter via a ramp decorated as a zebra crossing to celebrate the image of John, Paul, George and Ringo on the cover of their album Abbey Road.
Abbey Road Studios’ rich history is apparent throughout the store, reflecting not only the who’s who list of artists who have created in the studios but also the many technological breakthroughs that took place inside the Grade II listed building.
“Lumsden has really captured the magic that is in the air at Abbey Road Studios and embodied that in a shop that will be an exciting experience for visitors as well as a place to find a great gift or a momento of visiting us.
“Abbey Road Studios is unique and this store design has been beautifully made to measure.”
Isabel Garvey, Managing Director, Abbey Road Studios
