Kelham Island Residential Development

Kelham Island is one of Sheffield’s designated Quarters which was once part of the city’s oldest industrial districts. Warehouses, factories & workshops left empty by the demise of the steel industry are now being taken over by high quality residential developments, small businesses & artists. This key development is situated on a vacant site within the Kelham Island district & constitutes a mixture of residential & commercial units. In this sensitive conservation area, great care has been taken to conceive building forms which are relatable to the surrounding industrial landscape. Individual units come together to form traditional terraced streets along with 3 storey terraced blocks which form sawtooth rooflines characteristic of industrial structures close by. This scheme embodies Sheffield’s master plan for the region by offering a modern & sustainable urban community that recognizes its industrial heritage.
