The Maine – our role in this opulent delight in Mayfair!
In opening a new office in central London, we are building on more than 25 years working in the capital. From high end retail to world-renowned restaurants, our architects and planners have worked with a range of clients and consultants to breathe new life into industries that have had to work hard to come back stronger and better than ever following the events of the last couple of years!
One of our finest projects of the last year is arguably one of the biggest restaurant openings in the last few years! Introducing The MAINE, Mayfair!
The MAINE is the revival of a historical townhouse, former headquarters of Knight Frank, in the heart of Mayfair. As Canadian restaurateur and founder, Joey Ghazal, explains THE MAINE “…blends old world elegance, a New England extravagance and subterranean decadence.”
Breathing fresh life into Mayfair, grafting the present onto the past, with a blend of period fidelity and contemporary gloss. Joey Ghazal, together with London based designers, Brady Williams, supported by Woods Hardwick in our role as Executive Architects and Planners, have conceived an immersive townhouse experience – divided across three levels with five distinct rooms and a 350 seat capacity. There are even hidden gardens, reimagined from the original stables that backed onto Dering Yard, now named Medici Courtyard.
Completing in November, and with a celebrity guest list like no other, we are excited to have played a role in delivering this opulent delight in the centre of Mayfair
