The traditional heritage interiors have been sustained to inspire the current design of the office, which draws on a contemporary classic feel seeking insight from the French Renaissance architectural movement. The design of the workspace was executed by Stella Concept design studio, who have created a space that exudes an amalgamation of historical interiors meets modern conception.
