Entrance Lobby

Abundance of Light

Natural light welcomes you as you walk through the entrance of the apartment. The internal walls are covered in mirrors that, along with the ingenious architectural use of plaster of paris moulded cornices and skirting boards, make the space appear to have multiplied in size and volume.

Secret Door

A secret door concealed in the wall panelling reveals access to your guest suites. The beautiful parquet flooring in the original herringbone pattern is simply exquisite. The aged oak wood, treated only with natural oils, gives the silkiest feel when walked on barefoot.

blended Mix

A variety of refined materials have been used and blended together with the greatest of attention to detail. From the timber panelling and marble fireplace to the mahogany panelled doors and the exquisite brass inlays all features have been cut, fitted and finished by hand using the same techniques employed by craftsmen at the turn of the 19th century. The more you study the details, the more you are drawn by the romance of their story.

Dining Room

Majestic and Bold

Various monarchs, such as Louis XV of France, gave special favor to chinoiserie, a style of decoration that entered the European repertory in the 17th century. Entire rooms were painted with chinoiserie compositions by renowned artists and others brought expert craftsmanship to the style.

The warmth, appeal and feel of the hand made items such as the silk wall covering, the bronze doors and brass chandelier, are the result of the tiny irregularities caused by the human hand striving to achieve perfection. The spirit of the creator is embodied in each and every object.

Bronze doors

It took in excess of 1,000 hours for an artisan in northern Italy to create the bespoke bronze doors and architectural panels used in the warm and elegant dining room. Whether open or closed the architectural pattern retains its intended proportions. Despite their weight exceeding one tonne, their operation is precise and effortless.

Silk Wall Covering

Striking emerald green hand-dyed silk covers the walls of the dining room, taking an artist 18 weeks to paint the motif. The gold leaf ribbon used in the design could only be hand painted once the silk was applied to the wall, the artist requesting classical music to be played for inspiration.The bespoke brass chandelier that hangs in the room was designed to sit in perfect harmony with the tree branches featured in the scenery.

Underneath, you will find beautiful panelled doors that reveal a rather special leather clad cabinet which boasts a smart brass extendable shelf on which to present your cigars.

The Old and New

The perfect living environment cannot be achieved by simply replicating a page from a magazine. A careful selection of antique and unique pieces were sourced to complement the new designs crafted. The beauty lies in the successful orchestration of all the different pieces.
