Emerging Yorkshire-based star OS31 has unveiled plans to convert an existing home near Sheffield’s Park Hill estate into a live-work unit
The 230m2 project will restore a Victorian house, returning it to its former footprint and creating a family home.
An existing garage extension will be turned into an apartment and associated workshop while the house’s existing conservatory will be replaced with a private study.
At the back of the site, two small garden studios will echo the stable blocks, workshops and outbuildings that were historically present in the area.
According to the practice, the £250,000 project ‘retains the heritage of the street whilst continuing the trend of regeneration in the shadow of Park Hill’.
The project is expected to start on site next month and is set to complete in March 2017.
