Robert Lutyens (1901–72), with Monro & Partners executant architects
Marks and Spencer Company Archive
Rather than having an in-house architect, Marks & Spencer used four private firms. But problems with creating a recognisable image led them to appoint Robert Lutyens as their consultant architect in 1934. He devised a grid system that ensured architectural uniformity and allowed extensions to be made without upsetting the symmetry of the building. More than 40 stores were built using this system.
