Aims of Halton Mill
Concept: Option 1
Creative Hub
Cafe Proposal

Create a visual identity that reflects Green Elephant’s values, the mill’s history and the building’s function

Produce a set of interior design elements and styles that can be applied throughout the building as needed

Work up these ideas in the two main communal spaces in the mill

Consider potential uses for the various spaces inside the mill

Meeting and greeting first point of contact with clients/the public

Bookings, admin/upkeep/sales related to studio hire, ticketing for events

Waiting area for clients

Display information about the historical context of the mill

Potentially umbrella reception service for tenants
Concept: Option 2
Style: a cosy, welcoming homely feel using recyled, reused, upcycled materials
music/drama performances
collaborative ideas
a space for creative people and their ideas to meet and grow.
Creative multifunctional space that can be used for:
Food/drink/kitchen area for tenants (creating a "collaborative corner")

Income generator café/tearoom for the public walkers, cyclists and local residents

Raise the profile of the mill within local community

Creative meeting space for tenants’clients and local businesses
Application has been made for Innovation Voucher for further collaboration
Surface Pattern
Apply the design concept throughout the building to different areas, for example:

hot-desking area could take the industrial eco studio or creative lounge styles of the reception with draughtsman furniture, industrial lights, recycled crate furniture

corridors could use the lighting, floor and wall style of reception

various hotspots around the building could be used for informal meeting points
with some pallet seating, mill print cushions and drop-in computers
