Derby Silk Mill – Next Phase

Silk Mill section

We are delighted to have been appointed to progress Derby Silk Mill through to RIBA Stage 3 and thus be given the opportunity to continue working with Derby Museums’ Silk Mill team to support their innovative approach and their vision of what museums can be in the future. We are also pleased to continue our involvement with Derby, where we have worked on other schemes, such as the refurbishment of Marble Hall in Osmaston and Sadler Bridge Studios.

Joining our team will be Leach Studio, specialists in developing inspirational visitor environments, to develop the look and feel of the exhibition and learning spaces.
