For the public spaces, Goddard Littlefair’s design makes reference to the lifestyle and culture of the South Bank whilst taking additional design cues from the Festival of Britain of 1951.
The studio sought to create a sense of arrival with an oversized glazed, bronze lined double-door which leads to a stone-clad double height lobby area. The sleek, elongated reception desk anchors the space and greets the residents. The most striking feature is a three dimensional stone sculpture spanning the wall behind the design. A feat of engineering, the Moleanos stone was fashioned into the sculpture by makers in Portugal. Notably, the mesmerising design was created from hand sketches by Martin Goddard who personally oversaw the selection of the stone.
