In partnership with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Finchatton’s property development and design firm unveiled the first look of Twenty Grosvenor Square, the first standalone Private Residences from Four Seasons.
Located in the heart of Mayfair, the Four Seasons serviced building offers 37 residences designed by Finchatton, in collaboration with Squire & Partners.
“Twenty Grosvenor Square marks an exciting milestone for our brand, debuting Four Seasons first ever standalone property in a top luxury market, within one of the best addresses in London, and in a building with a remarkable history,” said Paul White, President, Residential, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “With our partners at Finchatton, the building has been exquisitely restored and, together with Four Seasons dedicated service and property management, residents will be immersed in the world of Four Seasons with an exclusive lifestyle experience.”
What was once the Headquarters of the US Naval Forces in Europe, and where General Dwight Eisenhower orchestrated the D-Day landings during the Second World War, hosts a combination of three, four and five bedroom apartments inspired by the building’s historic past.
The residences feature classical drawing rooms, soaring ceilings, media rooms, family and professional kitchens, and separate access for staff.
The 250,000 sq. ft. development also includes a private wine cellar; a spa with a 25m swimming pool; a treatment suite with steam room and sauna; a fitness centre; crèche; a cinema; business suite; garden library and landscaped courtyard garden.
Residents of Twenty Grosvenor Square also have the option to join Mayfair’s members’ clubs including Annabel’s, Wentworth golf and country club and Harry’s Bar.
“Our vision for Twenty Grosvenor Square was to deliver a lifestyle, which transcends any other residential scheme in London. Passionate about craftsmanship, architecture and great design we wanted to deliver a building with exceptional amenities and the highest level of service in the very heart of London’s most desirable postcode,” said Andrew Dunn and Alex Michelin, Co-founders, Finchatton.
Squire & Partners’ interior and exterior architectural detailing acknowledges the history and character of the building. Twenty Grosvenor Square retained the façade of Grosvenor Square, which has been extended with a contemporary stepped mansard.
“Timeless architecture is understanding that a building is part of an evolutionary process that connects the past and future in the present. For Twenty Grosvenor Square, the past and future are connected with the creation of a new façade intertwined with a retained façade, through contemporary use of traditional materials, reinterpreting classical proportions and details in a modern way and using current day technologies to re-imagine ancient craft,” said Henry Squire, Partner, Squire & Partners.
Jiin Kim-Inoue, Design Director at Finchatton, and the Finchatton team sourced materials across the globe and carefully choreographed a sequence of spaces, from the grand entrance lobby, to each square foot of every individual residence.
