Leighton House Museum and Art Gallery
Julian Harrap Architects
The Leighton House Museum required new double doors to help with thermal control within one of the upper galleries.
The doors would also be a decorative feature in their own right and provide a connection between two gallery spaces.
Bradley Basso designed new glass panels for the location. These were based on the Islamic design of the Arab Hall, in particular the Damascene Musharabiyeh windows, designed by Leighton's architect George Aitchison.
The finished doors make a significant contribution to the interior of the museum, while acknowledging the spirit of Lord Leighton's original home.
