93ft showcases Sheffield HQ and venue

93ft's suspended practice HQ at its The Mowbray development in Sheffield

Practice overhauls former steel and iron merchants as new studio and events space

Sheffield practice 93ft has completed a three-year project to transform a Victorian industrial building and a neighbouring structure into a 180-capacity events space that also includes a new headquarters for the business.

Named The Mowbray, the former steel and iron merchants’ building in the Neepsend district features an eight-metre bar and commercial kitchen on its ground floor, and a herbarium, workspace and a roof garden on the first and second floors.

In stark contrast to the fabric of the 1889 building, 93ft has incorporated a two-storey glass pod into the scheme which serves as the studio headquarters. The pyramid-like capsule is suspended from the ceiling above the event space and is accessed from an adjacent building on Neepsend Lane.
