Architect Aukett Swanke has given London’s 1938 Adelphi Building a new lease of life by refurbishing the art deco icon as state-of-the-art offices, highly visible from the River Thames. For the grandly proportioned travertine-clad lobby, the firm commissioned huge reliefs for the back wall, based on exploded details of original carvings and sculptures on the Adelphi’s exterior. In keeping with the building’s sense of Great Gatsby-like exclusivity, private members club NeueHouse will be taking two floors of space, in its first foray outside the US.
