Located in Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter, Brownsfield Mill was recently named by The Times as one of Britain’s most exciting places to reside. The old cotton mill exemplifies the extensive regeneration taking place in the surrounding areas and is a connection to the city’s industrial past as well as a mark of its new fortunes and future.
Developers Urban Splash have pioneered warehouse living in the north of England for more than 25 years. And now, collaborating with leading architect Roger Stephenson, they’re converting one of Manchester’s last Victorian mills into 31 large loft apartments. They asked our design team to demonstrate its remarkable potential.
When the Warehouse Home design team arrived on site at Brownsfield Mill, they found the site completely stripped bare and flooded with natural light through factory windows. Cast iron columns, exposed brick walls and timber beams combined in a historic grade II* listed building with unique character. Over the coming days, as our team worked tirelessly, the space came to life.
