Hidden behind a white flower garden and Poplar trees, the muted tones of the Lyceum lay tranquil. Passing under the arch, visitors were greeted with the sweet scent of jasmine, a winding path led to a bridge which once crossed steered to an incredible space which is now entered through colossal glass doors. The old barn transformed into a modern blank canvas resonates Grandeur of the Past, yet conjures up images of modern day romance.
Emerge from a tall Poplar forest to enter a lush green secluded space, you are surrounded with tall hedges with soft green grass underfoot. Breathe, this is your sanctuary.
Historical and intimidating, the bygone winery rested uninhibited and waiting to be explored once more. The blood red roses curled around its back and crept up the structure high up into the heavens.

A world where nothing was too much, where opulence thrived and inhibition was cast aside.
