GRAND LOBBY, RECEPTION, CAFÉ & COSY CORNER
The first impression of the Grand Lobby will be the warm, welcoming smile of the receptionist and the bustling, lively atmosphere of the area. Its Interior design will be welcoming, bright and specious with the introduction of quality details and luxurious finishes. The Café is the social heart of the space where residents and
guests can be involved in the day to day comings and goings of the home whilst those wanting a quiet time can find space in the more secluded cosy corner where they can read the newspaper or sit by the fire and quietly watch the world go by.
The grand staircase will provide a connection between the Grand Lobby and the Public Spaces below, with the dramatic feature chandelier designed to help draw your eyes down and create a visual connection.
This tranquil and comfortable space located behind the Reception is designed to provide a quieter area set away from the main hustle and bustle of the Reception, whilst still providing a visual connection.
