The reconfiguration of the first floor of Cooper Buildings in the Sheffield Cultural Industries Quarter for Sheffield Technology Parks to provide new co-working and incubator spaces for emerging technology firms.
The existing subdividing partitions and suspended ceilings are removed to reveal the character of the existing building and open up the whole building width. A series of new insertions create a variety of co-working lounge areas with full height glazed screens increasing connectedness and maximising natural daylighting. The modern palette of natural materials with vibrant highlight colours complements both the existing building and the new use. The project is planned for construction in early 2018.
