To fit seamlessly into the upmarket neighborhood, the design focused on Georgian and Victorian architecture and the use of traditional materials to achieve a look that gave a sense of belonging.

While a prestigious setting, the idea with the design was to create unpretentious graciousness rather than any jolting trendsetting visual. Looking back to the 18th century the team updated traditional Georgian character and Victorian aspects allowing the design to speak to the present and not just the past.
