Appleby Lodge

Appleby Lodge is a Grade II listed residential estate dating from the 1930s.  The three storey blocks of 100 flats are arranged in a U-shape around a central garden.

Designed in the Streamline Moderne style much favoured by the Art Deco movement, they feature cantilevered balconies and curved cornices.

The estate, designed by architect Peter Cummings and Gunton & Gunton, featured Crittall steel windows when built between 1936 and 1939 and these have been replicated in the refurbishment by the installation of Homelight Plus, the archetypal Crittall window design.

The replacement windows offer new frame sightlines that replicate the original single metal frame windows.  These new windows are re-eningineered to higher energy-saving accreditation, offering advanced performance and enhanced security with optional multi-point locking systems.  Corporate W20 windows were also installed as staircase screens in the communal areas as part of the restoration and upgrading.

The flats have been designed as an ‘urban oasis’ by Historic England and past residents include Sir John Barbirolli, conductor of the Halle Orchestra from 1943 to 1963, a fact commemorated by a blue plaque.
