According to Kajsa Krause and Tracey Sawyers, co-founders of Krause Sawyer, the design drew inspiration from the local warehouse structures and colonial detailing, industrial elements and artisanal craftmanship to hard-wearing garments and intricate tailoring. The design narrative was translated into details where raw materials meet refined finishes, art meets traditional skills, and where old and new connect.

The property also now has a new dining concept called Society Commons, which offers an all-day space for guests to eat, drink, play and work.
