Revitalizing an existing campus, through stakeholder engagement and carefully sequenced phasing.

The proposal was a new build of approximately 9,500 sqm for Sheffield Hallam University's Faculty of Development and Society. Sitting within the CIQ (Cultural Industries Quarter) in Sheffield and adjacent the Grade II* Listed Butcher Works, the development sought to respond to the historical significance of the site whilst creating a modern and contemporary facility for the University. 

The design is very simple in that it used the trace of Brown Lane (palimipsest) as an urban design driver for the atrium heart space/orientation device. Two flexible teaching blocks were positioned either side at a high level, opening out to showcase the educational and social facilities at ground level. The building was topped off with a unique roofscape and roof garden to reflect the historical significance of the site and take advantage of Sheffield's topography.

 

 

The original client brief stated a requirement to link the existing Arundel building and the proposed Charles Street building education departments via a bridge link. As part of a public art proposal discussed with the council, BA approached local interior designer Corin Mellor of David Mellor Design, to collaborate on the bridge design. Historically the site was an old cutlery manufacturing location on which David Mellor previously had a workshop, so Corin and his team were excited to get involved. They created a stunning concept that reflects the new and old of industry. 

"This project has been a labour of love for the whole design team and we believe the results speak for themselves. The opportunities provided by the building and the flexibility in teaching and learning methods available will undoubtedly enable the University to be at the forefront of education delivery for many years into the future.”
