Restoration wins prestigious award

Purcell Miller Tritton

Purcell Miller Tritton’s meticulous restoration of Leighton House Museum in Kensington has won a Europa Nostra Award for Conservation, one of the world’s most prestigious architectural awards. Originally the home and creation of eminent Victorian painter Frederic Leighton, the museum is owned and funded by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

Leighton’s original decorative scheme, furnishings and historic lighting were reinstated in the historic interior, allowing the collections to be authentically displayed within environmentally controlled conditions.
