Converting Old GunPowder Mill Into A Modern Office as presented by: Viral Blender

Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects converted a historic XVIII century gunpowder mill into a modern office. This mill was a center for the production and research in the field of explosives until 1991. The Gunpowder Mill scheme involves the sensitive conversion of historic but derelict buildings and the addition of a new modern element on a site surrounded by woods and parkland. In the 18th Century, the Royal Gunpowder Mills housed the largest gunpowder works in Britain. Two early 19th Century buildings, the Power House and Water Tower, have been converted to form a new headquarters for the client, Hill Partnerships, while remaining faithful to the industrial history of the site. A new three-storey glazed structure completes the office complex and incorporates a top-floor terrace which links all three buildings and gives magnificent views out over the adjacent water meadows.
