Beech Hill House, Sheffield
Project: Beech Hill House Residential Care Home
Client: Admiral Construction
Beech Hill House and Lodge were built in 1830 as the residence of the Duke of Norfolk in Sheffield. The Grade II Listed building was practically derelict with widespread dry rot prior to finance from a Norfolk family trust for restoration as a Care Home providing respite care for the elderly.
Self Architects oversaw the detail design for Design Build Contractor - Admiral Construction.
New floors and roof were constructed to convert the original building to residents’ lounges, dining room, kitchen and office facilities. 36 new bedrooms were added in new linked blocks around the original stable courtyard. One of the blocks was built behind the retained existing stable elevation.
Internally, existing details were repaired or replaced with matching joinery work. The original stone gateposts were repositioned, restored and new gates provided.
In a later phase, the Lodge was restored externally to prevent further deterioration.
