Frederick Mappin Building, University of Sheffield
Our team were approached by the University of Sheffield to propose a wheelchair access solution to the early 20th Century Grade II* listed Frederick Mappin Building.
The Mappin Building was one of the University of Sheffield’s original buildings, and still occupies a central role within the campus. Phase I of the improvement works comprised a new external ramp and steps for the main entrance.
The design for the ramp adopts the materials and proportions of the existing building, whilst clearly maintaining its difference through contemporary composition and detailing, embodying a modern interpretation of the existing palette.
