    Park Hill

    Sheffield

    Forged in Sheffield

    Park Hill is like no other. Rooted in 50’s utopia, grounded by Sheffield steel. 50 years ago the building heralded a brave new world expectant of change, 50 years on, it’s about to do it all again… but this time it’s different.

    Inspired by Le Corbusiers seminal Unite D’Habitation in Marseilles, it’s Corb with less sun and less sea.

    Park Hill has amazingly spacious one and two bedroom, duplex, dual aspect apartments with floor to ceiling glazing allowing the best city views Sheffield has to offer. Architects Hawkins-Brown working with Studio Egret West have given special consideration to the façade because of the significance of it looming over the city. Colourful anodised aluminium panels replicate the coloured brick tones of the original façade and emphasise the modular structure.

    Our commercial team are working to bring in wonderful neighbours downstairs too. A real mix in the ingredients of a proper place for residents and visitors alike: a 'high street' of local services - butchers, newsagents, greengrocers, a chippy- a doctor's and a dentist, a new home for the fantastic Grace Owen children's nursery, some great bars, pubs and cafes to make the most of the great views over the city, a village hall and a village green complete with oak tree, plus new workspace for businesses, artists or students, as well as dedicated secure provision for carparking. Two awesome, cool creative agencies have already moved into Park Hill.

    We are working to bring love, life and pride back to this iconic project and make it a genuinely vibrant and sustainable community for the 21st Century. Phase 1 is now complete and residents have moved into their new homes. We are looking forward to beginning work on new homes at Park Hill soon, so register your interest now.

    The space around the building is becoming beautifully landscaped gardens, perfect for spending lazy days outside. Urban Splash and our public partners – Sheffield City Council, Transform South Yorkshire, Homes and Communities Agency, English Heritage and Great Places can't wait to share Park Hill with you.

    S1 Artspace Public Consultation

    S1 Artspace at Park Hill

    S1 Artspace relocated to temporary premises at the Scottish Queen in Park Hill in 2015. We presented a series of events and exhibitions there, including the nationally-recognised Brutalist Playground in 2016. In 2018 we moved into the former garage block, opening with our Love Among the Ruins exhibition over the summer.

    We now have the opportunity to develop part of the Duke Street block of the estate into an art gallery and artists’ studios, providing a nationally significant arts and cultural centre for Sheffield at Park Hill. Our vision for Park Hill Art Space includes a new 600m2 gallery space, studio space for upwards of 50 artists and creative practitioners, education and community facilities and a permanent display telling the story of Park Hill.

    Proposals for the future of S1 Artspace are available as part of a public consultation in the gallery foyer until Saturday 8 December and online until Wednesday 12 December.

    New Commercial space coming soon

    We’re busy preparing the next phase of iconic Park Hill which will see 20,000 sq ft of commercial space become available. Units for work, restaurant, leisure and retail from 500 sq ft.

    If you’re interested in joining this fantastic community register your interest now to be first in queue or call our commercial team on 0330 666 0000.

    Life at Park Hill

    Location

    Beautiful Brutalism

    This amazing concrete landmark, the most ambitious inner-city development of its time, was opened in 1961, to replace slum terraces. It was a hugely popular place to live, with its 'streets in the sky' and innovative external decks for access.

    The original architects Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith's brutalist design created three different types of apartment above, below and adjacent to the deck to suit the full range of home owners from single pensioners to families of six or more.

    Over time, Park Hill became a victim of circumstance.Conceived in the 50's and delivered in the 60's, Park Hill emerged into a very different world. By the 1980's Park Hill had become dilapidated and was no longer a popular place to live. Park Hill caretaker, Grenville Squires, referred affectionately to Park Hill as his grand old lady who has 'come on hard times. She just wants to wash her face and put on a new frock, and she'll be out there!'.

    The Grade II* listing of the building in 1998 was an acknowledgement of the architectural significance of Park Hill and was strongly resisted by many at the time who wanted it to be knocked down.

    Studio Egret West

    Studio Egret West was established in November 2004 to offer strategy with architectural specificity, and specificity within an overall strategy. It believes that the way forward is the osmosis between planning and architecture. Studio Egret West is just this.

    Hawkins\Brown

    Hawkins\Brown asks questions, listens carefully and then thinks hard before putting pen to paper. Our broad experience of building has given us the skills, knowledge and drive to design and manage complex schemes like Park Hill in Sheffield, Corby Civic Hub and the design and construction of the New Biochemistry building for Oxford University.

    A revitalised community

    Fantastic Sheffield views, quick commuter links, dynamic creative businesses.

    A place where nearly 2,000 people will live, with offices, shops, a nursery, bars and restaurants underneath them, it will thrive rather than just survive.

    Warp Films break-out success came with Shane Meadows' iconic This Is England. Much of the location filming was shot at Park Hill before regeneration began. Post regen Warp couldn't wait to move in.
