The form of this departmental building for the University of Sheffield emerged from the concept of urban 'repair' (in this case concerning the redefinition of street edge and interior space), in combination with a carefully considered relationship with the neighbouring listed Victorian hospital. The building exists of three wings. Each wing is of a different height that responds in scale to its immediate surroundings. The building was designed as a simple and robust structure based on a fully sustainable approach: one that integrates limitations of investment and maintenance costs with technical considerations as well as practical and aesthetic ones. The structure has been pared down to a minimum. Concrete columns, soffits and core walls remain exposed to maximise the potential of thermal mass for night cooling. There is no screed and the lightning conduits are visible. The whole building is naturally ventilated. The fa├žade comprises a cladding of stainless steel and coloured glass.

A naturally ventilated building next to a busy roundabout. Genius!
