RIBA Award Winner / by Joanna Stabler

MANOR WORKS has been awarded ‘Yorkshire Building of the Year’ alongside a regional RIBA award.

As a new-build addition to the Alison Business Centre in south east Sheffield, the project provides innovative managed workspace for local start-up businesses alongside shared resources for local residents – a community workshop, digital media centre and multi-purpose hall that opens onto a new publicly inhabitable landscape. Funded through the LEGI framework, the building navigates a complex topography and planning constraints to provide welcoming facilities along an active public façade together with secure & affordable managed enterprise spaces. The project brings together combined opportunities in enterprise, community use and managed green space to deliver much needed public value for the residents of the Manor.
