Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Regno Unito: Shoreham Street by Project Orange
Project Orange

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.

Project Orange

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.

Project Orange

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.

Project Orange

These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

Project Orange

The new extension is contemporary yet laconic in form and an abstract evocation of the industrial roofscapes that used to dominate the city.

Project Orange

It is parasitical in nature, engaging with the host structure in a couple of locations, where windows bite into the existing building.

Project Orange

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.

Project Orange

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.
