Forgotten Spaces Sheffield 2011: Shortlist – Sheffield City Farm by Bond Bryan Architects

  • Comment

Sheffield City Farm seeks to link two disparate sides of the city with a green corridor, integrating an urban farm and allotments, relocating the city market and creating a waterfront edge

Sheffield is often cited as being the ‘Greenest City in England’, despite its relatively urban setting. However many city residential developments are remote from access to allotments and fresh produce from farmers markets.

To create an urban farm and marketplace we have chosen the ‘Forgotten Space’ of the site adjacent to Sheffield train station that every commuter passes daily which is bounded by Porter Brook and Sheaf Street.

Our proposal of the Sheffield City Farm looks to put a green heart and lungs into the city, not only providing ready access for commuters and residents to fresh produce grown on the urban farm, through the farmers market, but also a new pedestrian route from the city centre up to the residents of Park Hill and Norfolk Park and the new amphitheatre in Sheaf Valley Park.
