Why is this £1 billion palace on the block in London?
The new mansion by renowned Chinese architect and luxury designer Mitchell Corn was unveiled in the heart of the capital last week.
The property was originally proposed for £1.6 billion but it’s now on the market for just under £1bn.
Corn’s lavish new home was designed by renowned architect and designer, Mitchell Corn, who is also known for his luxury homes in China.
Corn was also a major donor to the Oxford University in Oxfordshire where he built the prestigious Oxbridge Palace in the mid-1960s.
Corn is known for designing such prestigious homes in Europe and has been the subject of much speculation since he left his prestigious home in China in 2014.
Corn recently spoke to The Daily Telegraph about his design, the impact of the London riots and how he’s planning to keep the Oxford Palace running.
Corn explained how the design of the new mansion was influenced by the fact that the Oxbridge House was demolished in 1964.
“I wanted to have a big palace with lots of windows in the front so I decided to have windows in each corner of the house, so I could see in all directions, and I decided I wanted to make the building feel as if it was on fire, but the windows were on fire,” Corn said.
“So I decided, well, I have to take the whole palace down, and there is only one way to do that and that was by putting a fire safety elevator down in the middle of the palace, and the elevator would go down through the middle and you would be in a fire.”
Corn has been a major contributor to the £3 billion renovation of the Oxford Street shopping and residential area in central London.
Corn said he’s looking forward to the renovation of Oxford Street’s iconic Oxbridge Street, but he’s also planning to look at the old Oxbridge Estate for future developments.
“We’re building a big development there, but we’re going to do the Oxladehouse, and it’s going to be the only Oxladeday estate in central central London, and we’re planning to open a big shopping centre,” he said.
Corn has also recently started work on a £3.3 billion project in south-west London.
It’s the second major project he’s been involved in, following his £1billion mansion at Downton Abbey.
The Oxlaceday estate has been designed by Corn’s son, who also designed the new Oxford Palace.
Corn plans to turn the Oxford Estate into a hotel, with luxury hotels and bars set to open in the new years.
He added: “We have two hotel properties that are set to go on the ground floor of the building, and a hotel in the building that will be built as a hotel on the first floor, and then a restaurant that will come on the top floor of that hotel.”
The restaurants will be on the same level as the shops, so you will have a restaurant on the upper floors and then there will be a cafe and then you will get a pub and then in the pub you will be able to have dinner, and so it will be just like the Oxleades, but in a hotel.
“Corn also said the Oxford Mansion would be a great place to have your wedding in.”
There are no rooms there, so it’s not going to have the same atmosphere that it does in Downtown Abbey, and you will not have to worry about security or anything like that, so we are really excited about it,” he added.
Corn added that the Oxford House has been one of the biggest successes in his career, but that the construction is about more than just the mansion.”
It’s about the Oxford family, it’s about everything that the family has done, and that is really what it’s all about,” he explained.”
You’re going for a modern, modern feel.
It’s going for the contemporary and you are going for luxury, but you are still looking for the traditional and traditional means to go for.
