Squire and Partners | Hanover StreetFrom 1800 to 1930 Hanover Street was the home of military tailoring, which influenced the design and craft in the detail of the building. A chevron motif used to perforate the facade is abstracted from military insignia, and combined with traditional military colours. The shutters are a contemporary reference to traditional timber shutters used in Mayfair residences to provide privacy and light modulation.

Squire and Partners | Hanover StreetSpanning the width of the building, the shutters can be fully opened and closed forming a dynamic frontage to the street and assisting with environmental control. When closed the bronze shutters allow light to permeate through displaying the chevron pattern, and when open reveal flashes of red lining and gold trim.

Squire and Partners | Hanover StreetEach typical floor contains a single apartment with a duplex apartment on the upper floors. Large open plan kitchen/living rooms to the front offer views towards Regent Street and Hanover Square.
