Fred’s approach restored the historic building line on Curzon Street, emphasizing its particular character as a meandering route through the Mayfair Grid– following the line of the River Tyburn below.

The resultant gently curved elevation creates a dramatic frame to the residential entrance at the centre of the Curzon Street frontage. The corner return to Bolton street is drawn forward to be visible in approaches from Berkeley Square.
