BDP's striking new office building completes in Sheffield 

A prestigious new office building in Sheffield, designed by BDP for specialist regeneration developer Priority Sites, has just been completed. The 61,000sq-ft office scheme in the historic Wicker area of the city is the first phase of a masterplan, also carried out by BDP, for a former industrial site, bounded on one side by a neglected stretch of the river Don. The masterplan suggested high quality office buildings and residential development which would act as a catalyst for the regeneration of a wider city quarter. The first phase speculative office building called 1 North Bank is a striking five storey office building with a flexible plan and two reception areas and two circulation cores to allow a variety of sublets. The accommodation comprises clear floor plates arranged in a shallow ‘U’ with the long side parallel to the street and a short return along the river. The riverside frontage is raised two storeys off the ground. This raised ‘pod’ forms a public space at ground level and creates a dramatic and expressive landmark which together with other new developments will create a significant urban gateway into the Riverside Quarter.
