Refurbishing a Grade II Listed Mill building for SSP in Halifax

Bluesky Design have a longstanding relationship with SSP, and were fortunate to be asked to provide interior design services for their move within the Dean Clough Mill complex in Halifax. The business had previously occupied three disparate spaces within three different Mill buildings, and the project involved consolidation of the business into more suitable contiguous space.

Working closely with the client and contract team, we prepared concept design and implementation drawings to enable the realisation of the scheme within this challenging space.

The proposed concept was to acknowledge exposed building M&E services, listed building features, exposed brick and stonework, vaulted ceilings and several cast iron columns! The existing furniture was to be retained and supplemented with carefully selected new product to create a cohesive interior scheme.

The project was completed in April 2013 and the design concept is currently being rolled out to other SSP offices within the UK at Aldershot and Solihull.
