Scheme by Hawkins Brown involves revamping series of Victorian mills

A scheme by Hawkins Brown to revamp a series of grade II listed Victorian mill buildings in Wakefield has been given planning.

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.

It sits next door to the West Yorkshire city’s Hepworth gallery designed by David Chipperfield and built by Laing O’Rourke. The £35m venue opened seven years ago.
