Tower Works, Globe Road Leeds.
Leeds City Council
DURATION: 7 Weeks
We are undertaking the restoration of three imposing recognisable and unique landmarks Grade 2 Listed Italian-style towers in Leeds for Leeds City Council .
The structures were dust extractors for a factory that made steel pins for the textile industry.
The works was founded by T.R Harding in 1864-66 and the towers' design was influenced by his love of Italian architecture. The Giotto Tower, the largest of the three, is based on Giotto's Campanile in Florence, while the Verona Tower takes its design from the Torre dei Lamberti in Verona.
