Working closely with the developer Story Homes, Unwin Jones developed the detailed designs for the conversion of this Grade 2* listed cotton mill. The practice was involved in a lengthy but constructive consultation process with English Heritage and the City Council. The end result is a building that has retained its industrial character with very little change to the historic fabric. There is an exciting contrast between the existing building and the modern, contemporary apartments and external additions. The apartments have won a number of Housing and Architectural awards including a Civic Trust Mention.
