Bond Bryan bags £25 million Sheffield Hallam faculty

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Bond Bryan Architects has landed the £25 million project to design Sheffield Hallam University’s new Faculty of Development & Society

The locally based practice beat 109 practices, through a two stage OJEU process, to win the commission for the 9,500m² building in the south Yorkshire city’s Cultural Industries Quarter.

Describing the victorious scheme, which features semi-transparent walls , Bond Bryan associate Matt Hutton said: ‘The need for the building to become a landmark within the city led us to developing a vibrant design concept that will radiate across the cityscape. Using translucent wall elements means that the building will shine and be seen across the city’s night skyline.

‘English Heritage is very interested in how we deal with a site sitting within the quarter and adjacent the Grade II* listed Butcher Works building.’ 

The development is due to complete in 2012.

  • most new uni buildings in sheffield are done by BB and not aethetically succesful. There should be an end to this meaningless ornament facade approach!

    Unsuitable or offensive?
