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.
