Information Commons, University of Sheffield by RMJM

  • Comment

Leavygreave Road, Sheffield S3

The Information Commons combines a library and IT resource, mainly for undergraduate students. Different types of environment and acoustic separation within create enclosed silent areas and more open, I Pod friendly activity spaces. The massing and choice of pre-patinated copper and contrasting dark tiles on an in-situ concrete podium creates a powerful presence on its round-about setting.
