        People of Park Hill: Nick Bax, Human Studio

        16 June 2022
        A 2 minute read by Mark Latham

        Human was the first business to move in to Park Hill – even before some new residents – and we were a bit lonely initially, but within 12 months it had changed.

        We had lots of faith in the project when we first came here – moving from a Grade ll listed old factory to a Grade ll listed brutalist building that was controversial at the time. Its potential and our belief in it has been rewarded. As the years go by I just see it getting better and better. People are invested in Park Hill - financially and emotionally.

        This isn’t a typical office environment - coming in to work we get to see and meet residents. There’s always activity and a vitality about the place. I love hearing the voices and laughter of the children from the nursery.

        During the lockdowns my team worked at home and I was in here alone, but I actually got lots done – it became my fortress of solitude!

        Where Park Hill is situated it has a visceral connection to the city. You feel within the city but it is also a very tranquil place. We’re right next to the largest roundabout in the city but it is so quiet. Having tranquillity and vitality together is a rarity. Visitors are always surprised by how green the area is and, being on a hill, you really notice all the trees that surround us.

        I was involved with a project about the early history of the city and discovered that the location of Park Hill was originally the deer park for Sheffield Castle. Their banqueting hall faced towards Attercliffe so the parkland was on this side, on a hill, to give guests the best view. It’s really interesting how the area has evolved and how the perception of the area continues to change.
