Hawkins Brown cleared for Wakefield mills regeneration

Hawkins Browns proposals for the grade II listed Rutland Mills

Practice wins consent for project next to Chipperfield’s £35m Hepworth Gallery

A Hawkins Brown Architects masterplan to revamp a series of grade II-listed Victorian mill buildings in Wakefield has been given planning permission.

The work at Rutland Mills, which have been derelict since the 1990s, is an arts-led regeneration and will include space for artists, designers as well as those working in the digital and tech industries.

The latest phase of a scheme to redevelop Wakefield’s waterfront, the mills site sits next door to the West Yorkshire city’s £35m Hepworth Wakefield Gallery designed by David Chipperfield.
