Sevenairs Road, Sheffield
Project: Supported Accommodation
Location: Sevenairs Road, Beighton, Sheffield
Client: Guinness Northern Counties
The scheme to provide supported accommodation for vulnerable people on a brownfield site on Sevenairs Road in Sheffield was developed through lengthy discussion and consultation with the applicant and end-users.
A building was designed to have core units accessed through a central control and satellite units with independent access, wrapped around a central south-facing courtyard garden. The rooms have large windows with low cills to give views from a seated position over the gardens and adjacent public open space. The front of the building engages with the street and creates a strong urban edge, contributing positively to the local environment.
