Life at Park Hill
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 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.
“I work in the city centre and the location is important to me. People should trust Urban Splash – what they've done so far has been brilliant”
