The Ribbon Factory is part of the Phoenix Initiative, Coventry’s primary Millennium project. Developed by Complex Development Projects, the Grade II listed Ribbon Factory is a late 18th Century building, with an adjoining Master’s House within the ruins of a medieval priory. Modern interventions alongside the historic characterise the conversion within the multi-award winning Phoenix scheme.

The building was described by the City’s Conservation Architect, George Demidowitz, as “in a very sorry state with no prospect of being brought back into use. The excellent conservation is a tribute to the efforts of the designers and an example of how to provide imaginative and practical solutions to bring these sites back into full use and to integrate them into larger regeneration projects.”
