Our inspiration for Capital House, a commercial building with a Georgian facade and 80s extension, came from an unlikely source. Based in St Paul’s, a gritty and unloved area in Bristol notorious for drugs dealers, we imagined what a Georgian acid trip might look like.
The result? Meet Lady Blackwell, the prim but thoroughly improper guardian of ‘The Apothecary’. She is as surprising and inventive as the creatives she is trying to attract.
Our Lady Blackwell was modelled by actress Salka Bakman, beautifully photographed by the excellent Laura Braun.
