Butcher Works Sheffield

Location: Sheffield

Architects: Race Cottom Associates Architects


The Butcher Works buildings on Arundel Street, Sheffield, are a landmark of the entire city industry. The complex is one of the few parts of the 19th century Cutlery Works still in pristine conditions. The restoration design includes fifty-one flats at the upper levels with shops and restaurants at ground level around the courtyard and the old chimneystack.


The building, an old factory built in 1835 and once at the centre of the city’s cutlery industry, was given its bold new image by Race Cottam in 2007. With many of the original features retained in the new development, the project has refurbished the derelict Butcher Works buildings into a unique mixed-use scheme of residential, commercial and educational use. Because of its evocative Victorian nature, the red-brick buildings, set around a courtyard and standing in the shadow of the original chimney, have been used as a backdrop for some television dramas.
