Learning Hub

The University of Sheffield

The refurbishment and new extension to the Grade II listed Edwardian wing of the original Jessop Women’s Hospital is designed to regenerate this redundant facility as a new Learning Hub for the University of Sheffield. To provide a range of teaching and learning facilities for both staff and students, within the historic building, the £7m development is at the centre of the University campus. The stone clad addition to the existing fabric provides much needed rationalisation of the circulation within the building and visually is a distinctive addition, clearly articulated both formally and materially. Planning consent was granted in 2009.
