In the year since I moved here, I’ve gradually seen this built from the ground up. While I think it looks slightly out of place at the moment (as the first of a few planned developments), I think it’s a wonderful looking building, and I’ve been patiently awaiting the removal of a wire fence as it’s neared completion. It must feel wonderfully open on the first floor, as there’s no glass above the handrail that you can see.
Apparently it’s part of a multi-million pound project for local youths (11-19), and will include a cinema, rooftop cafe, IT suite and theatre. I think this is great news for Rotherham, and really hope that it’s a success.
Despite appearances, this is a single image, created with a pair of black gloves (I’m calling this “sensor dodging”, for lack of a better term).
