INTRODUCTION

This former flour mill dating back to 1901 was converted into a selection of contemporary 1, 2 and 3 bedroom loft-style apartments in 2005/6.

Prior to any work taking place, the mill was desolate and formed a harsh and barren environment with a sea of concrete surrounding it. It had also suffered from extensive vandalism. Although not listed with English Heritage, Standon Mill was a locally listed building in a conservation area, so there was active interest from local conservation groups as well as local planning authorities. Design constraints included:

  • Many different floor levels throughout the building
  • The site was on an existing flood plain
  • The existing cast-iron and steel internal structure with columns bolted together which were a major constraint with regard to sound and acoustics
  • The busy A120 road at the front of the site which restricted the amenity value of this area
  • The mill was a deep plan building and therefore there was big potential for dark corners in the conversion that needed to be addressed

Despite these constraints, Standon Mill was spectacularly successful and the sentiment was echoed by the local community.  Former employees at the mill appreciated the retention of character in the building and purchasers were amazed at the transformation. City & Country won a number of prestigious awards for Standon Mill including:

  • 2006 Hot Property 'Environment' Award
  • 2006 Mail on Sunday National Home builder Design Awards Commendation for ‘Best Conversion’
  • 2005 What House? Awards, Silver for Best Renovation
