Event description

Description

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about The Hollis Building, the RIBA Yorkshire Award and RIBA Yorkshire Small Project Award winner, from the RIBA Yorkshire Project Architect of the Year, Jen Langfield and members of the Chapel.

Sheffield’s historic Upper Chapel complex sits in a quiet location in the city centre. It comprises two large, grade II listed buildings. The grand galleried Unitarian Chapel is approached through a landscaped graveyard. Whilst the seemingly unrelated Italianate building housing Channing Hall faces onto a different street. Joining the backs of these two buildings is the Hollis Building. This houses the congregation’s social spaces and the back-of-house facilities to the listed building. This building had become run down but the refurbishment and extension have created a legible plan which links the whole complex together.
