Derwent Works was built around the late 19th century and was historically part of the Taylor & Challen Derwent Works. The development at Derwent Works has undergone a huge transformation, from a disused and derelict metalworking factory to four unique loft apartments.

A three-storey side extension has been built and the rear of Victorian complex has been increased to three storeys to increase the living space of each apartment by an impressive amount.

The steelwork and beams have been left exposed, floor and wall finishes kept in their natural state with exposed brickwork and original features retained wherever possible. Windows have been replaced with steel framed windows to restore the building to its original style. Derwent Works has retained its industrial style, but has been given a new lease of life.
