Conran & Partners
Conran & Partners has released this picture in concert with its planning submission last week for Sheffield city centre's tallest residential tower. St Paul's Apartments will comprise of two linked towers, providing 279 apartments: one of 10 storeys on St Paul's Place and the other of 21 storeys on Arundel Gate.
The space between the buildings is to contain a private garden for residents, and the wall above the service road will be planted with flowering sedums, mosses and lichens to absorb the noise and pollution created within service areas. Timber windows and full-height sliding doors are punched into a slender terracotta tower, which is to be faced with a layer of glass on its north and south sides.
