Overcoming Challenges

Discovery work presented challenges in the renovation as some areas were concrete and had to remain in place. The team was able to work around this by concealing these concrete structures within a column or having the upper section of the column projection more shallow than below.

A white marble wall was discovered at the basement level during the demolition. The wall would have added a unique design feature if it had been used in the public areas, but it had been demolished above the basement level, making incorporation unattainable.
