Development and rehabilitation of a redundant Victorian industrial building at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield

The mixed use scheme contains duplex workspace units above a double height restaurant bar with a substantial extension at roof level. The extension is designed as a contrasting but complementary volume to enhance the existing building and create a striking landmark on the inner ring road.

The construction consists of a lightweight steel frame with composite concrete/steel ‘Ambideck’ floor decks. The steel frame both supports the extension and restrains the original brick walls.

The cladding to the extension is formed from Kingspan Benchmark ‘Karrier’ insulated panels clad with sinusoidal powder coated aluminium profiled sheets. The roof to the extension is finished with an extensive Bauder sedum roof.
