John McRae, co-owner of Orms, asks us to capture the internal entrance area at 95 Wigmore Street. It is inspired by Palazzo Spada in Rome; which presents a play on perspective with a series of arches that decrease in size so that the artwork within appears larger than it is. The entrance and reception of 95 Wigmore Street changes in scale, from a double-height colonnade to a single-storey height reception and lift lobby, with artwork, beyond. The building itself is 100,000 sq ft that contains office and retail uses.

Following a recent visit to Hong Kong, I spent a morning at Zaha Hadid Architects’ nearly completed ‘Innovation Tower’, for Hong Kong Polytechnic University. My intention was to make reference to the location through the use of people and environment; while capturing the tower’s key characteristics. The design evidently sets a new precedence for the typology of a tower.
