He’s what he had to say…
‘Venue space, The Meeting Room, in The Chimney House on Kelham Island, has been ranked the second most creatively designed boardroom in the world.
eVenues, Seattle-based experts in meeting, events and unique spaces, announced the shortlist on their blog last week.
The Chimney House is a grade II listed building and is part of the industrial heritage of Kelham Island.
eVenues said: “The red-brick walls, hardwood floors and salvaged furniture and décor give the place a welcoming, “lived-in” feeling.”
This uniquely ‘Sheffield’ space beat a boardroom in a Baltimore bank vault, a meeting room with a Lego brick table in an Irish advertising agency, and a room in Cape Town that changes colour based on ambient light.
Since opening in 2010, the venue has been used for meetings, training sessions, workshops, away days and conferences, even weddings.
Once upon a time, the building was home to a working elephant, Sarah, who helped out with the heavy lifting in the area’s rolling mills.
Sally Clark, owner of The Chimney House, said: “The Meeting Room has been designed to be inspirational and innovative – we’re delighted that we have ranked with the best in the world.
“Every element of the design, furniture and items in The Meeting Room tells a story of recycling and reworked purpose which we’re proud to be recognised for.”
The Meeting Room can hold from four to 55 people.’
