Cotton Works, a Grade 2 listed building was once the largest cotton producing site in the region, and contains a group of buildings built between 1883 and 1920. The project include design scope for conversion of the ground floor of Mill 1 into a spacious 15000 sqft food hall housing a variety of independent street food vendors, accompanied by a generous bar, an inviting outdoor wrap around terrace.
Visually the finished concept has been sympathetic to the building’s heritage and industrial past, whilst also incorporating modern and relevant elements. DV8 worked within strict planning, M&E and operational constraints to develop the 15,000 sqft. food hall into a uniquely exciting 350 cover operation encompassing at least six operator kitchens as well two bar operations, spacious external terrace, and a self-contained micro-brewery to offer a unique social experience for a diverse audience to enjoy from morning through to the evening.
