Sheffield Youth Council. Sector: Community. Value: £70k. Client: Sheffield City Council. SYC required a multipurpose space to use as a base for their organisation. They had the use of an empty industrial unit and required a flexible and welcoming space, appealing to their regular intake of new members and adaptable to a wide variety of potential uses. We left the building's envelope largely untouched, instead making virtue of the roughly finished interior in the creation of a 'loft-like' space with the addition of exposed services, a galvanised steel spiral staircase, mezzanine floor and bold enclosure for the WCs and entrance lobby.
