A small kayak centre located in a green pocket in-between the river Don and Tinsley Canal

This small scale Kayak centre focuses on views by framing the canal, sky and wood through the extruded volumes. This centre links the contrasting river Don and Tinsley Canal with the public path; creating views of the Kayaking activities and new artificial bay. The use of timber frame, wood panelling and stone is both ecological and links to the scenic environment enhancing this natural corridor of Sheffield.

A local library focusing on history and mapping linking it to the indigenous Ropewalks culture

This Library contains a café on the ground floor spilling out on to the south facing square in front of the FACT Centre and on the public route to the commercial Bold St. On the floors above are stacks, workspaces and a self contained map room. On the top floor is a workspace with outdoor seating and panoramic views of Liverpool.

The rhythm of window openings follows the vernacular street rhythm. However the glass front façade and bridge reveal the inner workings, providing a dynamic architecture for pedestrians.

The community hub with dining, cooking and laundry space provides area for interaction between neighbours. With opportunities to share skills and support neighbours through diners, film nights, coffee and self organised evening entertainment.

There are a range of dwelling sizes with some single level dwellings for the elderly and mobility impaired. Nearly all dwellings have outdoor space and direct visual connection to the green.
