Listed in 2015, Historic England cited the Edwardian Baroque architecture of James Gibson, as well as the HC Fehr carving and ornate plaster ceilings as principal reasons for the listing. Our design embraces the existing features to showcase the building in its original form and incorporates the reinstatement of the original tiled wall, once situated behind the main stairs and the main entrance.
The interior design solution juxtaposes period detailing and design references with modern furniture and graphics. The collaboration of our interiors and graphics teams has generated a new identity with a sophisticated orientation and wayfinding strategy with is both mature and fun and creates an appealing environment for all users, regardless of age.
