In 2006, Pearce Bottomley Architects were appointed for numerous internal alterations and careful extensions, including a new garage block and kitchen refurbishment, to this Arts and Crafts style villa in Leeds. We have since added an orangery to the rear of the building, enabling there to be a practical extension to the living space whilst providing a view over the south facing gardens. We are proud to have returned to this project time and time again, and witness its development and expansion year after year.
An essential aspect of this project was the way in which the house drew upon the ethos of the Arts and Craft Movement as well as its aesthetic – the emphasis being on the quality of craftsmanship. The orangery was constructed using Yorkshire stone to match the main building, with the windows and doors designed in a bespoke manner to complement the existing property.
