The Theatrics of Light

With an aim to transport visitors to London, Shanghai or New York during an era when craftsmanship and materials were revered, and buildings and interiors were designed to endure and built to last. Conservatory is reminiscent of English conservatories and references Georgian grandeur and Art Deco detailing.

By employing traditional craftsmanship techniques, we’ve aimed to create a sense of timeless permanence. Adopting century-old techniques set in a modern context, such as the use of traditional fluted details on the bar or the restaurant’s solid metal screens, along with the repetitive use of a soft arch formation, it’s a true mix of French-Deco industria and old-world decadence.

It is also the first time we have experimented with distilling the concept of a space to a simple line drawing, then translating this graphic form into a repetitive architectural detail. The inter-secting arch motif features on everything from the chandeliers to the chairs, tables and wall detailing.
