Whittam Cox Architects and Alumno are thrilled by the news that Beton House, Park Hill in Sheffield has been selected as a 2022 Regional Finalist in the Civic Trust Awards under the AABC Conservation Award Category. The AABC Conservation Award celebrates projects that demonstrate the highest standards of historic building conservation.
Nick Riley, Board Director of Whittam Cox commented, “Park Hill is captivating and infectious; its original design has timeless value and integrity architecturally. Our team have delivered a design response which ensures a long-term future for the fabric of this historically important building, whilst also seeking to promote a sustainable and diverse community. Being part of the Park Hill story has been a genuine privilege for us, especially as so many of our team and their families live in the city. To be recognised as a regional finalist by the Civic Trust is a testament to what the entire project team have achieved”.
Beton House is the third phase of the redevelopment of Sheffield’s iconic Park Hill estate. Originally completed in 1961, Park Hill is the largest listed building in Europe and is regarded as a significant brutalist building of heritage.
Béton House has been beautifully repurposed for students with a range of stylish rooms and studios (for students who would like a private kitchen as well as an en-suite) in an iconic setting, and is perfectly located next to all the local amenities you may need including a pharmacy, a medical centre and a convenience store that has just recently opened.
