192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant.
The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, to celebrate its industrial heritage and allow the building to be once again relevant for use. The brief was to provide mixed use combining desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.
The new extension is contemporary yet laconic in form and an abstract evocation of the industrial roofscapes that used to dominate the city. It is parasitical in nature, engaging with the host structure in a couple of locations, where windows bite into the existing building. The new roof profile creates dramatic sweeping ceiling profiles in the new accommodation, a sectional dynamism that is to be further enhanced by the use of double height volumes in the duplex units created.
The proposal is intended to enhance the existing building and create a striking landmark on the inner ring road; a symbol both of the area's past and its aspirations for the future.
The project was named Sheffield Building of the Year 2012 and won an RIBA Regional Award 2013.
