Project Description

House of Lords: Peers Lobby ceiling

Following the conservation of the Chamber ceiling, a different approach was sought for the Lobby ceiling and we were asked to carry out this project. The timber (as in the Chamber) had become desiccated by the gasoliers. It was interesting to see Pugin’s changes of mind in the colours he used.
