Shopper’s Diary: Retrouvius Reclamation in London

April 21, 2009

The partners at Retrouvius aim to “bridge the gap between destruction and construction.” Founders Adam Hills and Maria Speake studied architecture before starting their salvage and design business in Glasgow; in 1997, they moved to London and set up shop in Kensal Green. The duo recently overhauled a storefront on Harrow Road, which affords entry into their warehouse facility.
