Bond Bryan Architects project ‘Charles Street’ shortlisted for Brick Awards

Bond Bryan Architects is delighted that its Sheffield Hallam University, Charles Street project has been shortlisted for the Brick Awards within the Education Building Award category.

The prestigious awards ceremony, hosted at The Hilton, Park Lane, will take place 9 November 2017.

The annual Brick Awards celebrates the use of clay brick in every aspect of design and construction. Recognising the excellence of architects, developers, manufacturers and brickwork contractors, the Brick Awards has established a reputation as one of the industry’s most respected and well-attended events.

Brickwork is a key component of the Charles Street project and its context; Bond Bryan approached the design and detailing of this element as an opportunity to engage with the immediate context whilst also reflecting the historical significance found within the detailing of the adjacent Grade II listed Butcher Works building.

All bricks for the project were provided and made bespoke by Forterra in the Wilnecote factory in Staffordshire and installed by Marlborough Brickwork Contractors.

Working alongside the specialists, Bomd Bryan Architects utilised a pattern of projecting headers with single and double cant brickwork to create depth and to address scale and massing.
 The completed elevations provide a real sense of place within the city’s Cultural Industry Quarter (C.I.Q.) and ensure a distinct dialogue with the listed building.
