We were appointed to design and deliver a new-build student living development in the centre of Sheffield, situated close to Sheffield Hallam University.

The development included the demolition of some existing low-grade industrial buildings which are low-rise in scale. New proposals comprised a five and six storey building which is L-shaped in plan. This optimises efficiency of the building layouts by using a single vertical circulation core.

The design of the building has been informed by the Local Planning Policies and Guidance and in terms of mass/ form and materiality it responds to the site’s context within the changing Cultural Industries Quarter. Our vision was to create a simple and modern design which will stand the test of time and use materials which are robust and contemporary. Brick is very much the local material vernacular, but we have added zinc and gold metallic cladding to ‘layer’ the facades and provide an elegant and dynamic building.
