Leighton House Museum, located on the edge of Holland Park, was the studio home of well-known Victorian painter Frederic, Lord Leighton, designed by George Aitchison and constructed between 1865 and 1896. We were appointed to lead a £1.2m conservation, refurbishment and restoration programme to realise the client’s ambitious plans to return the house to the full glory of Leighton’s and Aitchison’s original architectural vision.
The ambitious scheme included the meticulous restoration of the building’s original ziggurat parapets, historic interiors and magnificent Arab Hall gilded ceiling dome, newly illuminated by the refurbished gasolier.
