Scope and content:
File documents an executed project for interior renovations to Hobbs Food Shop, a specialty grocery store located on 29 South Audley Street, London, England. Cedric Price's design includes the layout and detailing for display and holding cases, and possibly renovations for the kitchen, basement storage and bathroom facilities. Price also proposed an unusual front entrance which is flanked on either side by sculptural "tuning forks". There is an existing conditions reference plan of no. 26 and no. 29 South Audley Street. A panel with a reprographic copy of a schematic diagram outlines possible routes to the workplace for the staff. Conceptual and design development drawings include schematic sketches; numerous alternate floor plans; triangular, bulk barrel and zig-zag configurations for display and holding cases; and thumbnail sketches for the "tuning forks" for the entrance. Design development drawings also include: plans for proposals 1 and 2 for the renovations; an enlarged plan for the forecourt and display window showing the entrance, and including a key to storage areas; an axonometric for the entrance interior and an elevation for the principal façade showing the "tuning forks"; and plans, sections, and details for shelves, display counters, and holding cases. Reprographic copies were made from the original design development drawings and these include: basement and kitchen plan layouts; a front elevation with "tuning forks" and fascia panels showing transoms and stallboards with Hobbs and Co. logo; and interior wall elevations. Some of the reprographic copies have been annotated with notes. Material in this file was produced between 1980 and 1983, but predominantly in 1981.

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, a panel, models, and textual records.
