Heart of Sheffield

View all projects

Intended to reverse a decline in the use and status of Sheffield's city centre, this project re-established a strong urban structure in the heart of the city with a succession of building's framing a sequence of both new and re-imagined public spaces. Central to the objectives was to consider new ways a post war dual carriageway could be crossed by encouraging future buildings to turn their face to it rather than back onto it as originally assumed. Our involvement continued with the design of new mixed-use buildings in St Paul's Place together with the multi-storey car park conceived as a significant civic building in its own right.
