Specifications & Features
A grand entrance porch of classical design and proportions is an impressive presence on this part of Carlos Place situated as it is between Grosvenor Square and Mount Street. In the entrance to the building there are full height elegantly framed steel and glass doors which themselves allow entry (but with protection and security) to the tall Entrance Hall also of classical appearance and which has been lovingly restored to the original Wimperis & Simpson design of the 1920‘s. There are large Tuscan columns framing the staircase and the lift entrance door at the top of the stairs which is of intricate bronze design backed by mirror polished stainless steel. The floor and walls on the hall are dressed in white limestone with restrained detailing presenting a dignified, calm and stylish interior. The large chandelier above combined with the framed mirrors and artwork will add a contemporary touch to what will be the first impressions of this building, those being sensations of luxury, privilege and exclusivity.
There is a porter’s station discreetly positioned to the right behind the staircase.
The lift and main staircase (reaching all floors) are also laid in limestone and give direct access to all four Apartment Suites. The lift itself is lined in polished and dark stained oak with inset mirrored panels, bronze trim and stainless steel fittings.
