MoreySmith’s design, interiors and style compliments the grandeur style of the Art deco façade. Every individual material used has been chosen specifically to create an elegant interior with luxurious, tactile touches. The decorative entrance gates were refurbished and a new drum revolving door installed, to upgrade the entrance to this iconic address.

The reception space of this striking building has been transformed after being stripped back to the shell. An open, bright eight storey atrium floods the space with natural light, enhances the feeling of space, connectivity and draws people into the heart of the building. A bespoke embossed leather panelled wall adorns the lift wall, a soft finish which compliments the clean lines of the atrium. A dramatic commisioned artwork chandelier by Stewart Haygarth creates a focus at the base of the atrium. The details celebrate the art deco era in a soft bronze finish, hand wrapped leather has been used on the handrails.
