The clients came to us with a Covent Garden legend, a tale of a Victorian gangster who escaped on the way to the Old Bailey and disappeared into the tunnels under Covent Garden, never to be seen again.
We imagined what might have happened next and worked with Finch Interiors to create a Victorian basement clubhouse for the gangsters and puppet-masters of the time with mind-bending tricks and visions of controlling the future.
