Foreign Office, Hawkins\Brown and fellow stars reveal Sheffield development

  • Comment

These are the first images of the 80,000m2 retail-led Sevenstone quarter for Sheffield city centre.

Developer Hammerson has assembled an assortment of practices to deliver the 8ha development, including Foreign Office Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Hawkins\Brown, BDP, Pick Everard, Stiff + Trevillion and landscape architect Gillespies.

The scheme will also include a gold-coloured building by Foreign Office offshoot Acme Space, and a flagship 26,000m2 John Lewis department store designed by Dublin-based practice O’Donnell + Tuomey.

Five years in the making, the two-phase project will create more than 100 shops and 250 flats. The first shops are expected to open in 2011.

Carolyn Kenney, the project director at Hammerson, said: ‘We have been working on this for about five years – initially as a feasibility with BDP.

‘We then drew up a longlist of architects, before whittling them down, asking each individual party for their feedback on the masterplan. They have all had a contributing effect on the bigger picture.’

She added: ‘We were very keen to include smaller, exciting practices and not just go for all the usual big names.

‘This scheme will give Sheffield a retail offer which it simply hasn’t had before.’
