Following on from the success of the pop-up on Burlington Arcade as well as the residency at Chelsea Barracks, Hideaway made 100 Mount Street their permanent home. The client’s brief was to transform the premises into an elevated, light-filled space that would feel airy and inviting. Studio Caché began by looking into the history of the street, with the ironmongers, milliners and shoemakers that used to trade here. This has been incorporated into the decor via elements of antique curiosities such as mannequin hands and shoe lasts, as well Victorian bird cages. Visual cues have also been taken from the academic displays and wall hangings of nearby art institutions such as the Royal Academy. 

As the site is a Grade II listed building, extra care was taken in retaining the overall character of the building, with the retention of existing antique wooden floors as well as other minor elements. Studio Caché worked with KVA Studio on the design and build of the bar counter, with its paired back aesthetic that does not overwhelm the space and allows the other decorative pieces to speak for themselves.
