Glodwick Pool

The brief was to imagine a future for the pool, and re-invigorate it as a sporting and community hub. The Trust’s holistic ambition aims to cater to people of all ages and abilities, supporting the community’s most vulnerable members. This vision however, is hampered by the restrictive existing plan and difficulties involved in adapting a former swimming pool to serve up a more diverse programme.
Although the vision for the site is a radical departure from its initial scope, we have endeavoured to ensure viability on the tight budget. The hub brings not only added social value, but also becomes a more appealing offering to the staff at nearby healthcare sites. Spatial flexibility means conferences and larger public events are easily catered for, diversifying the revenue stream. The final vision is organised around a community core that will catalyse the project’s sustainability and viability.

Future Factories

The Future Factories Live Project was tasked with addressing the question of collaboration between makers in the context of the emergence of new industries and modes of work in arts, crafts and manufacturing. The clients provided two distinct issues; firstly, how to encourage collaboration among makers and craftspeople, secondly, how to improve the use and development of historic industrial spaces turned to new use. We were provided with Live Works as a space to work within and were invited to exhibit our work and ideas as part of Sheffield Design Week 2016. Our response was an adaptable exhibition to facilitate the meeting, conversations and events that facilitate connections between makers, as well as a smart phone application that created a dispersed network of individuals linked through their common interests and productions.
