The site is sensitively located within the Cathedral Conservation Area adjoining a number of listed buildings. It is on a prominent sloping site within an active street of mainly professional offices

The Council’s planning brief was very restrictive regarding use and capacity with a strong emphasis on architectural and urban design quality. By detailed negotiation from the outset with planning and heritage officials, we were able to increase the development content by 2 extra storeys of apartments. The scheme had to be presented to the Conservation Advisory Group prior to Planning Committee, with close attention from English Heritage, Georgian and Victorian Societies and other heritage interest groups.

Using 3D computer modelling techniques we were able to demonstrate the visual impact of the design from any viewpoint, and we were able to clearly show the proposed building in considerable detail sitting within its heritage context. By increasing the capacity, we were able to demonstrate that the added development value enabled the scheme to be built using higher quality materials than if we had slavishly followed the Council’s original planning guidance.

The project also involved significant archaeological investigations on the site adjacent to Sheffield Cathedral.

Rights of Light were identified at the outset as a major influence on the design. As the majority
of neighbouring buildings housed solicitors and chartered surveyors, this was an important and interesting phase of the project, where the specialist team of consultants minimized the commercial impact of this potentially major constraint.
