Some human undertakings are extraordinary; they deserve to be wrapped in a setting where researchers explore and invent in space created just for them.

Centres of excellence have become a feature of the University. Our role was to respond to detailed technical requirements and also to create distinctive places, giving research communities a strong sense of identity; alongside the laboratories, shared ‘people-spaces’ encourage thought and conversation.

SITraN is an international centre of excellence for research into neurodegenerative diseases with the potential to make a significant contribution to treatments bringing new hope to sufferers. At the building’s centre is a large, tall top-lit writing/study space: the heart of the institution where thoughts are shared. Externally the use of natural materials and creation of a garden setting reminds us that life is truly wonderful and we are out to protect this precious gift.

SITraN was a shortlisted project at the 2012 Sheffield Design Awards and won a 2011 RICS award for Design and Innovation.

"The Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience was a challenging building due to its location and the fact it was funded mainly from benefactors. The design of the building was one of the instrumental factors in attracting funding".

David Briggs, Project Manager - The University of Sheffield
