Millway

Location: Millom (UK)
Type: Refurbishment / Community
Status: Concepts

Millway has been on record as part of the town of Millom since the eighteenth century. Once a mill building and then the foreman’s office for the Millom Ironworks, Millway has always been central to the economic lifeblood of the town. The noble brick building will be repurposed to house a series of accessible community spaces for locals and tourists visiting the remarkable network of coast and nature reserve that this once industrial centre has become. Interventions look to frame and work with the palimpsestic nature of the building, continuing the story of Millway through injecting complementary new materials, modern services, water tightness and light.
