192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, to celebrate its indThe 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.
