Park Hill Art Space
A shortlisted competition entry to design an art gallery within Sheffield's Park Hill estate
Building 4a straddles three distinct terraces that are identified by the existing retaining walls. Our project accentuates the character of these specific places as a way of integrating S1 into the city and making a strong relationship with building 4b.
The Duke Street gallery entrance welcomes people coming down the hill with a courtyard made between the existing trees and the retaining wall, revealing the existing building beyond. The form and the materiality of the gallery provides a distinction with the existing building.
