Curzon Cinema in Sheffield
Built in a former bank hall and Grade 2 listed building, Curzon cinema is now a luxurious entertainment venue with three auditoriums, a private viewing area and a roof top bar terrace. The concept was derived from the history of Sheffield and its industrial heritage, especially the famous steelworks. Stamps, patterns and geometric shapes are featured in the designs with eclectic furniture styles throughout. As with all ABDA designs, we wanted to bring in the story of the building and local area throughout to create a venue with the wow factor and one which residents would love.
Materials were carefully chosen to create an intimate environment with features such as unfinished steel ceiling tiles and dramatic lighting within the foyer to draw the customer to the box office. Using timber and steel cladding within the auditorium brings warmth and scale. There are several areas for visitors to sit and relax and enjoy a relaxing Curzon experience.
The team overcame all the challenges of developing a listed building to create an exciting and modern venue, whilst maintaining its history and relevance to city.
