In 2013/2014 ACRD was appointed as strategic partner to BP to develop a blueprint for its future store format. One of the landmark projects was the BP Katoomba Store for the Dunn Group. Located at the foothills to Katoomba on the Great Western Hwy this project was a built from ground up. ACRD had the pleasure of working with Ben Dunn to create a new architectural façade and totally new interior design. These designs have captured the use of new materials for BP, which include a raw concrete finish to external surfaces, alucobond cladding in the BP green and full height trex timber cladding feature wall elements to end corners of the building.

As part of the brief, ACRD also updated the interior design by developing an innovative, customer-friendly shop focused design format that referenced historical places within the Blue Mountains to form feature graphics in store. In sync with this innovative approach, ACRD applied some fresh new interior colours and finishes, incorporating new floor coverings, new feature ceilings design treatments and an exposed black sprayed out ceiling. The customer’s feedback on the store design from the toilets to product and services on offer is truly an exciting leap forward for BP and is serving as a new benchmark in fuel convenience store design, whilst promoting a strong sense of community.
