A celebration of the beauty of nature in each room: twisted, curved and exploded. An ode to the city of London, in the renowned Old Bond Street.
We fully restored the exterior façade of the building, preserving its Baroque heritage; the giant black wrought iron gates decorating the show windows are designed in perfect English style. The rich marble flooring looks like a powerful river carrying visitors from one space to the other. A curvaceous spiral staircase in black marble sits centre stage, with individually hand-crafted contrasting inlaid marble steps. The first and second floors are entirely faced in book-matched marble, while the three upper floors are connected by an oval stairway constructed in an uninterrupted sequence of marble wedges composing a pattern that looks identical from above or below.
The biggest challenge: creating a spectacular space of utmost quality in a very tight 3 month schedule, considering that heavy demolitions were in progress on some floors while final finishing on others.
