Sheffield announces hotly contested architects' panel

A gaggle of both established and emerging practices has been selected by Sheffield City Council for its new architect and urban design panels

Ranging from Stirling Prize winners Maccreanor Lavington and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios to up-and-coming practices such as mæ Architects, the firms will predominantly work on residential projects across the South Yorkshire city.

The 12-strong architect panel (see below for full list) is expected to be used by both housing associations and the council’s new local housing company which is currently being set up.

More than 120 practices initially threw their hats into the ring. The final dozen were chosen, according to Miranda Plowden, programme director within the council’s housing strategy section for their ‘community engagement, design Quality and commitment to sustainability.’

Alex Ely, a partner at mae, said: ‘We have found ourselves among a cracking set of practices which bodes well for Sheffield.’

The firms will also work on housing refurbishment and the city’s opublic realm.
