Ollier Smurthwaite wins go-ahead for Manchester mill conversion

  • Comment

Growing practice Ollier Smurthwaite has won planning to transform an existing mill building into homes in Reddish, Manchester

The scheme will see the Elisabeth Mill, which lies in the Houldsworth conservation area of Reddish, converted into 202 homes.

The project also features 49 new houses arranged in blocks lining new streets and forming a series of semi-public courtyards.

The mill element includes a large atrium which has been inserted into the centre of the building to provide a dual aspect to the apartments.

The site’s main entrance leads to a central courtyard which includes live-work units, a community centre and a village green.

According to the practice the project will ‘create a new urban village modelled on the elements found in old mill complexes’.
