  • Client brief The project, housed in what was a former textile factory, has been carefully moulded to respect the pre-existing scale and history of the site, resulting in a complex, aesthetically balanced environment. Inspired by the qualities of traditional oriental gardens, the designers have incorporated multiple layers of nuanced architectural detail, and have integrated an eclectic selection of avant-garde soft furnishings and décor. A calm color palette provides a sense of tranquility, enlivened by gold leaf, dark timber, white stone, and green plants, creating what the designers refer to as “audible silence”, or the “sound” of an inner world beneath the surface.
