Prestigious residential development in London, containing sixteen luxury apartments, penthouses, commercial space and basement parking

Located in a Conservation area, the development is bounded by streets of Victorian town houses on three sides.

On Park Lane, the predominant material is self-supporting brick, sitting on a two-storey stone base (which contains the commercial accommodation) and punctuated by stone-clad bays which mark the principal internal spaces.

On the side elevations, a stone plane intervenes, stepping down to the scale of the neighbouring houses. The glazed penthouse pavilions which cap the building offer views of Hyde Park.
