The open plan layout is designed to allow a natural flow of people throughout the inspiring grand and upright piano showrooms. Both offering the flexibility to move pianos as needed and allowing access to the visitor lounge/ home setting and workshop area. The recital space forms part of this open plan showroom, a bespoke suspended curtaining system encloses the low stage, creating a magical and intimate setting for both the guest and performer. The practise studios are positioned away from the main showroom, framed, and highlighted by high bespoke cast concrete wall panelling and dramatic glass chandeliers in smoked glass and contrasting against the moody tones of the exposed ceiling and services.
