The Workshop provides office and studio space for one of Sheffield’s leading design companies. Situated in the Nether Edge conservation area it reconstructs and further extends an existing 1960’s extension to a large Victorian Villa.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Flora Samuel, Chair of the Jury and the Head of the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield said that ‘The architects have cleverly maximised space to create a relaxed, airy and really pleasant working space. On the front facade skilful composition and an eye for detail differentiates the workshop from its suburban context. This is a delicate and well judged project that fits well into its surroundings whilst announcing that it is different.’
