We have been appointed, as the first design practice in the Sheffield City Region, to play a key role in the transformation of Park Hill – to add bespoke student accommodation to the mix of commercial and residential developments currently underway at the Grade II-listed landmark blocks.

The partnership aims to deliver circa 350 student bedrooms for occupation in the 2020/21 academic year, with the initial proposals being designed around groups of four and eight bedrooms with shared living space in an innovative three-storey ‘townhouse’ model.

Park Hill is an iconic piece of architecture which is important not only for Sheffield but is also recognised internationally as a significant development and milestone in post war modernist design. We will be undertaking a thorough refurbishment using new materials of excellent quality, whilst preserving the historic character of the building.
