Following the completion of Victoria Embankment in 1870, William Waldorf Astor built Two Temple Place in 1894 to elaborate specifications, as it was to be his London residence and estate office away from the United States. The architectural gem, often referred to as Astor House, presents an imposing casket of Portland stone on the exterior with its interior a testament to the skills and expertise of some of the finest sculptors of the nineteenth century.
The building was built by John Loughborough Pearson for William Waldorf Astor, founder of the famed New York City Waldorf Astoria, in 1895.
An unrivaled venue for functions of a personal or corporate nature, opulent weddings or a unique product launch, Two Temple Place combines the grandeur of a state occasion with the intimacy of a party in a private house.
Kat Von D shot to fame because of her exquisite artistry and edgy persona, so when Dowal Walker asked us to capture that image for a UK launch of her make-up range we were only too excited to get going. The press would be gathered at the spectacularly gothic Two Temple place, and we had just four weeks to be ready for them.
"It was a true privilege to be working on such an exciting event. There was a real opportunity to be exceptionally creative, from both the overall event design, through to the finer details. It was a wonderful event and we're really proud to have worked with all involved."
