Holland Park museum set for extension and upgrade in project designed to ‘clarify original architecture’
BDP has released details of its proposals to refurbish and expand the grade II-listed Leighton House Museum in west London as part of a £7.8m upgrade project for the “hidden gem”.
The Holland Park museum was the former home and studio of Victorian painter and sculptor Frederic Leighton – later Lord Leighton – and has been expanded repeatedly over the past 150 years.
Leigton acquired the plot for the house in 1864 and appointed George Aitchison to design its first phase. The relationship continued for the next three decades and saw Aitchison add numerous extensions, including the building’s Arab Hall, Winter Studio and Silk Hall.
