Holcombe Mill is a Grade 2 listed structure on an industrial estate in the Nailsworth valley, near Stroud. Working in collaboration with the local conservation officer, the Mill has been rescued from near dereliction and converted into flexible serviced office space for one or multiple occupiers. The new architectural interventions including a corten metal entrance canopy, metal staircase and services are designed to be of high quality and sympathetic to the industrial context and origins of the mill building, yet remain clearly legible as modern. Natural ventilation, and high levels of natural daylighting combined with the historic features of the original building provide a pleasant working environment for the tenants of the building.
