Bar One – University of Sheffield Student Union

Continuing our fantastic relationship with the University of Sheffield Student Union, we were both excited and delighted to be involved with the refurbishment of what is said to be the largest student union bar in the country.

Our design team were tasked with the overhaul of this awesome bar, creating a new look that fitted seamlessly with the Bar One vibe and what makes the venue a favourite with students.

Ensuring the bar was robust, practical and easy to clean was as important to the customer as ensuring the new design fitted in with the existing interior but allowed future changes to the venue to be developed by drawing inspiration from this initial phase.


The works comprised:-

  • Design Assistance – ensuring the bar servery worked for both staff and customers.
  • Corian was sympathetically used to create aspects of the Bar One overall theme and cleverly dovetailed with industrial metal panelling and subdued LED backlighting.
  • Corian counter tops for durability.
  • Site installation.
