The building has significant Art Deco features and became Grade II Listed during the design process. The site consists of two main elements - a five storey building fronting the street and a two storey building to the rear, these are separated by a light well that extends down into the basement level. The basement has independent access from Harley Street level.
The consultancy rooms are bought back into the family living area of the single dwelling with their Art Deco features preserved. The courtyard is redefined as a linking space between the site’s two buildings. A new level of accommodation is formed with the introduction of a new top and roof terrace.
