The lavish space is nestled in the famous Queens Gate Place Mews in west London, a celebrated mecca for classic car enthusiasts for many decades and the company’s long-term home.
The business, which claims to be the place “where the world’s greatest cars come to be sold”, has cleverly integrated the stunning new, high-technology showroom seamlessly into the beautiful and traditional surroundings of the mews.
The new premises are an addition to the existing showroom and creates significant new space in which cars can be displayed in a beautiful, contemporary setting. Arranged over two floors, the showroom incorporates an ingenious and unique hydraulic lift to raise and lower cars from the large subterranean display area to street level.
Gregor Fisken, the company’s founder, says: “This project has taken over 3½ years to complete from the initial planning stage, and has required some outstanding architectural, design and engineering expertise. To have the new showroom open in our 25th anniversary year is a fantastic way to celebrate this landmark in the company’s history.
“I am delighted that we have successfully preserved the mews’ wonderful, traditional character and yet have created what we consider to be one of the finest modern environments in which to display historic cars.”
Fiskens is internationally renowned as the world’s foremost dealer in fine historic automobiles,
