The Box, Headingley

  • Client: ARC Inspirations Ltd
  • Architect: KPP Architects
  • Value: £400k
  • Duration: 4 weeks

One of the most popular and iconic bars in the student heartland of suburban Leeds has been given a fast-track makeover by Medlock.

The design brief called for a modernisation of the existing layout without altering the relaxed atmosphere of this Headingley institution famous for its beer, food and sports viewing.

Clean detailing with a mixture of finishes such as wood block, exposed concrete and metal cladding produced a minimalistic yet comfortable environment for the loyal clientele, pre-dominantly local students and young professionals.

The al fresco pavement terrace and the top floor roof garden were also given a fresh new look by Medlock. The Box re-opened to rave reviews after a four week
closure.
