FaulknerBrowns transforms Sheffield Alpine village - images

  • Comment
Newcastle-based practice FaulknerBrowns has been given the go ahead for Europe's largest indoor 'real snow' hall.

The new £80 million Snow Mountain project in Sheffield, which revamps the city's famous ski village, will become part of the wider regeneration programme in the Don Valley.

The project includes plans for a 300m-long ski hall, new leisure accommodation, a hotel and a gondola cableway link to Sheffield Supertram.

It is hoped around 1 million snow enthusiasts a year will visit the new, themed Alpine Village Resort.

According to the practice's design statement, 'the development will offer a unique variety of skiing and winter sports activities, including black, red and green-graded runs, along with a half pipe and children's play area.'
