August 2021 saw the completion of a former Victorian Sunday School building in Rawdon, Leeds into the headquarters for a commercial client. The tall single-storey main hall has been restored to provide an open-plan office with new heating, LED lighting, data systems and whilst taking full advantage of the tall lancet windows. The existing ancillary spaces are fitted out as toilets, staff restroom/canteen, stockrooms and individual offices. All original features of this Grade II Listed building have been retained which includes a grand stone staircase, exposed principle roof trusses, hardwood floors and panelled doors.
The original diamond leaded lancet windows have been slowly damaged and lost over the years but new sealed double glazed units matching the original style are now installed including the large rose window in the west end gable. The west porch is restored to prominence and an original doorway reopened and glazed to provide an attractive entrance. Phase 2 of the project will include a part mezzanine floor over the main office area served by a feature spiral staircase.
