The Old Spratt’s Factory

Built in 1890, this residential unit in a converted dog biscuit factory has been refurbished and is now a beautiful modern dwelling. Space Group Architects has transformed the space, which comprised the original grain and flour warehouse and two bakeries. The area is now a threebedroom family home, with a new layout to fit an additional bathroom and study. The double-height living area benefits from large arched windows, providing plenty of natural light. A galleried landing overlooks the main hub of the home and is made from the same steel as the renewed staircase – an important focal feature that underlines the industrial history of the building and maintains the factory’s character. The homeowners run Encore Reclamation ( and so were able to source their own wooden floorboards and timber beams.
