Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson to design Henderson’s Relish pub

Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson's designs for the Henderson's Relish pub
  • Comment

Sheffield firm Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson has won a competition to transform the Steel City’s old Henderson’s Relish building 

The practice saw off competition from 17 other local practices to win the coveted job.

The scheme for the University of Sheffield will transform the old brick factory building where the famous sauce used to be produced into a pub.

Henderson’s Relish – a local delicacy – was produced here from the late 19th century until the site closed two years ago when the family-owned company moved to new premises.

The proposal retains the building’s famous signage which was once stolen from the building but was returned after a city-wide search was launched.

Keith Lilley, director of estates and facilities management at the university said: ‘We were really delighted with the high quality approach from all our finalists but the concept that Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson developed just really hit the spot with a great design to incorporate the original house into a stunning modern setting.

‘We believe the pub will be a fantastic addition to opening up the spaces around the University to make it a more welcoming place for the people of Sheffield and we know that Hendersons’ many fans will enjoy the opportunity to spend time in the place that was home to Henderson’s for so long.’

Pamela Freeman, managing director of Henderson’s, added: ‘Having the chance to be part of this project and see the building that was such an important part of our company’s history preserved and brought into public use is fantastic. We love the ideas that the architects have developed and can’t wait to see the new building take shape.’

Planning for the project is expected to be submitted later this year.
