The brief was to design a cycle centre; a temporary structure that could accommodate facilities such as storage for up to 50 bicycles, a workshop, and cafe for the public, mainly commuters. The proposed cycle centre acts as a community hub; a place in South Street Park the public would not just pass through. Its strategic location is convenient for commuters heading in and out of Sheffield’s City Centre.

The brief was to design a small scale community theatre, which responds to the existing conditions of the proposed site. It was to be a performance space of any sort, that could bring the community together; reviving the state of the neighbourhood. A puppet theatre was proposed to bring the existing community of Attercliffe together, through the art and stories told through puppetry.

Prior to the Housing project, a group of us studied the Timberyard Social Housing in Dublin, Ireland. This gave us a greater understanding of how the type of housing had informed its architecture. I had the opportunity of making a stop motion video as a more subjective form of evaluation for this study. The video features the 2 bedroom flat and emphasises on how each space is used.

The brief was to design a housing project with the notion of ‘the shared’ in mind. This development had to accommodate the needs of families and other domestic groups, while responding to the context of Heeley, a neighbourhood south of Sheffield’s City Centre. The proposed development adopts the idea of co-housing; a lifestyle which balances privacy and interaction. This responds to the public or non-domestic characteristics of the buildings surrounding the proposed site. Leaning towards a self-sustaining community, growing becomes the heart of this project; bringing residents together on a daily basis.
