No. 72 Bootham

A sensitive conversion, turning a nineteenth-century house back to its original form after decades of neglect.  Surviving details have been inventively retained and lost details restored while incorporating all the modern facilities required for modern living. [It was clear that this was more than a commercial venture, it was personal project.  The conversion is exemplary.  It is unusually sensitive but does not sacrifice the need to adapt to the way people live today.]

Architect: Richard Parkin/ Roger Wools
Client/Developer: Owner
Presented by: Professor David Fleming, Vice Chancellor, York St. John University
