About the Project

The Developing London Group, inspired by Plymouth’s regeneration program, tasked a team of local professionals, led by ADG Architects, to design an inspired, dynamic office space, to breathe life back into this once fatigued building. Sustainability, specification and style were the leading words inspiring this development. With these targets set high, the building has achieved all three, with a very rare EPC ‘A’ rating, high-end services technology and stunning specialist interior finishes.


A Montuno’s evening will take you back to the heady, intoxicating days of the 1930’s speakeasy. It brings you the Sinatra-style of the Rat Pack, classic kicking 1940s swing, and smoky blues from New Orleans with a hint of scandal. Sumptuous food, fine bourbon & wine, entertainment from celebrated & upcoming swing, jazz, funk, soul and blues artists, in surroundings designed to dazzle and draw you further into the colourful world of gangsters, flappers and molls. Appealing to people of all ages and from all walks of life, the atmosphere is authentic, electric and exciting. With its Art Deco interior, the scene is set for playfulness and refined eccentricity.
