Steeped in Sheffield music history, The Broadfield was once a platform for many a music luminary, including: Jarvis Cocker, The Human League, Artery, Cabaret Voltaire and ABC; this rich heritage was one of the many inspirations for this cultured make-over. Many of the artworks used to dress the view references and influences and chronology of this hugely important independent music scene.

I also referenced in the aesthetic, that it was a regular meeting place for the Railway Workers Union and introduced a Victorian decorative influence with the colour scheme to compliment the architectural style of the building.
