Achitect Purcell Miller Tritton and Surrey-based Angel Interiors are working on the £1.3m refurbishment of Leighton House in west London.
The former home and studio of the Victorian artist Lord Leighton, Leighton House fell into disrepair following his death in 1896. The current works will see the back staircase refurbished and opened to the public for the first time. Also being restored for viewing by the public is a basement area with a butlers’ pantry and bedroom. Purcell iller Tritton is creating a simple education centre in the original basement kitchen.
Leighton House appointed Purcell Miller Tritton in 2008, before bringing Angel Interiors on board last summer.
Leighton House Museum will re-open to the public on 3 April.
