Located in the heart of Kensington, London, Leighton House Museum is the former house of artist Frederic, Lord Leighton. Purcell were commissioned to understand Leighton House within its historic context and develop a Conservation Management Plan to ensure the longevity of the building.
Our team led a £1.2m conservation and restoration programme which has successfully returned the building to its former glory.
Conservation Management Plan
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.
Our Conservation Management Plan helped the client to understand the house in its context and tackled important issues for the future of the building. We led a £1.2m conservation, refurbishment and restoration programme to return the house to the full glory of Leighton’s and Aitchison’s original architectural vision.
