listed mill conversion into student accommodation
development by David Bellis at Lowry Design.
A new steel staircase runs up through the volume
providing access to each floor level. The stair
and volume have been made as open and unrestricted
as possible within the parameters laid down in
building and fire regulations documents and, by
positioned centrally in the building, additional
escape stairs have been avoided, providing the
opportunity to create further accommodation which
normally would have been required for alternative
means of escape.
David Bellis was awarded Civic Trust Award for
Conservation following completion of this project.
