Working for construction and commercial property lawyers Barton Legal on the extensive refurbishment of their new offices in Rawdon, Leeds has been an extremely fulfilling experience for Barrett+Barrett architects. We were able to really flex our creative muscles and demonstrate our extensive planning and highways expertise in designing what is regarded as the most talked about building in the area.

Commenting on the project client William Barton said: “Although the offices we acquired had become dated and a bit of an eyesore, in their day they had been rather leading edge. The NHS-blue frontage had been a landmark for many local people since the 1950s and we wanted to keep up the tradition but at the same time bring something more contemporary to the area.

“The work we do is very specialist and we wanted to stand out; our stunning purple new offices are equal to any found in a major city’s legal district.”
