The Locksmith - IDEA 2023

The Locksmith

Studio Y


Conceptually diverse, this European mansion has been transformed into an eclectic and rebellious playground, designed to unlock the senses and draw patrons into a world of forgotten time. Sophisticated at ground level, the mood shifts to enigmatic and eclectic as you move upwards. At rooftop, animals run wild amid overgrown vines, brass monkeys and floral motifs.
