The Devonshire Club London Designed By March & White

MW

 

A private members club has a peculiarly complex purpose. Add to this, 70 hotel suites above for the use of members and the logistics, functionality and performance require scientific analysis. Aesthetically, each room, each space of the club, needed to have a sense of the unique whilst being an episode in a larger, entire, piece.

To commit to creating a large, significant and very valuable piece of art is to prepare to meet some very formidable challenges. Devonshire Club was no exception to the theory. At March & White, they always work with the best craftsmen using the very finest authentic materials to ensure everything is completed to the highest quality standard. Furnitureworks are a Sussex based craft furniture makers with a reputation for producing the very highest quality upholstery. Working closely with them. 

March & White were able to interpret the organic curves and forms of mid-century style into our own, absolutely contemporary furniture.

The philosophy for Devonshire Club was to create an elegant and iconic destination for London’s city elite; a glamourous and subtly feminine space which confidently spoke of creativity, vibrancy and sophistication. Distilling inspiration from both mid-century modern design and couture, March & White created a series of distinctive spaces. These, each very individual, are, separate but still subtly connected in series, resulting in an intriguing journey from the moment of entering the club.

The mood is one of glamour and elegance with a vibrant, and very contemporary, undercurrent. Their take on the primary colour palette is visible through our selection of fabrics and finishes, creating a unique version of the Mondrian palette that boasts a timeless feel throughout the entire club.

Hossein Rezvani carpets are produced exclusively with the best raw materials. Using Persian cork- and highland wool, the most durable and best quality wool in the world and pure natural silk. Also refrain from using mechanical or chemical treatments. Natural dyes are a must, which not only preserves the sublime characteristics of the high quality natural materials but also underlines the vibrant colors and shine of these timeless masterpieces. The result is a unique craftsmanship that carries the seal of quality „Made in Isfahan“.

Persian carpets have always been and remain profoundly entrenched in Iranian culture and the daily lives of its people. For generations, the Rezvani‘s have produced and distributed masterpieces from their home country. Hossein, who is the third generation of a family to be involved in this profession, is dedicated and passionate about the rug industry and he gives the traditional Persian rug a contemporary twist. Each single rug designed by Hossein has the desire to bring forth something new that holds an emotionally touching and enduring value.

During manufacture, a significant value is placed on reinterpreting classic craftsmanship and combining this with design that is contemporary and simultaneously elegant. Another main aspect is to avoid mass production and rather to produce a bespoke rug that may be inherited by future generations of families. Thus, creating a modern classic for the 21st century.

MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD’S EXOTIC RED O…

Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed the Red O, a new flagship restaurant.

 

IMG_7308

Newport Beach is known as one of the largest upmarket shopping destinations in the United States. It’s was a perfect location for Master Chef Rick Bayless to open a flag ship for his modern Mexican cuisine style Restaurant Red O

IMG_7309

The 9000sq feet eatery was custom built for the sole purpose of fun. I designed the entry to include a tequila temple, a structure tented and vaulted reaching 14 ft. high with walls of limestone niches reminiscent of a Turkish palace, housing the rarest and most exotic tequilas in the world. This space opens up to the main bar, clad in textured leather panels above Mexican tiles, I mixed in custom designed lanterns from Morocco and designed a vast Chandelier centered above the bar hung with a hundred hand blow glass Hundi lanterns.

IMG_7310

The main dining room design was inspired from San Miguel, an ancient town in Mexico where the aristocrats from Mexico City built their summer villas in the 19th century. The tile work that clads the walls I custom designed with Ann Sacks, adding distressed mirror paneling to create sparkle and romance at night. The main ceiling was covered in ottoman style lanterns with pierced brass work bases that throw delicate shadows across the room at night. I designed a central banquet to incorporate a vast planter where exotic palms and tropical orchids could be planted to create life and flow into the space, while pierced work Jali type screens punctuate the vast windows and add to the light play during the day.

IMG_7311

The terrace has a retractable ceiling and was clad in concrete tiles, custom designed and inspired from patterns in the Alhambra palace. Panels of sheer drapery add romance and create areas of privacy for diners, whilst a vast tile clad fireplacecreatesa cozy atmosphere in the winter months or chilly evenings.

Chef Bayless prides himself on his delicate flavors and spices that infuse his cuisine like no other in this field , the design too I spiced up to match his ethos and created a Restaurant that has many different areas to enjoy, whilst feeling rich, exotic and inviting.
