KRYNKL is a bold and unique intervention in Sheffield city centre. Set within the urban village of Kelham Island, KRYNKL is a mixed use development that offers low cost office space for start up businesses, meeting rooms, a coffee shop and a Yoga studio. The scheme is also home to the highly acclaimed Joro Restaurant and the popular rooftop Inc Bar incorporating a half covered outdoor terrace adorned with fairy lights and wood burning stoves.
The scheme is constructed entirely out of shipping containers which offers a very low cost, efficient and flexible building solution for the site.
This was a great project to work on but one that came with a set of very specific challenges. Not only was there the site’s past, which everybody was determined had to be preserved, but there was also the fact that we had to create two family homes in what is actually quite a small space. We came up with a design that filled all Nik and Jon’s wishes, a brilliantly contemporary pair of properties that also pays tribute to the story of the site and, through the use of materials, to the bigger story of Sheffield’s industrial heritage.
The 80-metre dam, which once provided power for the corn mill, has also been cleaned and restored, providing a haven for kingfishers and other wildlife.
