Text description provided by the architects. This mixed use scheme provides residential, retail and office accommodation, revitalising a key riverside site in Sheffield. The brownfield site, which faces the River Don, was previously used for retail and warehousing.

The scheme, is housed in a landmark 16-storey tower, two five-storey apartment buildings and the converted Grade II listed Castle House. The scheme also includes a new riverside walkway, landscaped public space at the centre of the site, and the restoration of the ‘crucible stack’ – a historically significant listed monument.

123 one and two-bed apartments are arranged around a landscaped courtyard. A restaurant is located in the base of the spectacular fully glazed tower, and the apartments above have the benefit of a communal roof terrace space. The three-storey brick-built Castle House has been retained and converted into offices with a café bar and restaurant on the ground floor.

The materials palette of high quality brick, glass and zinc claddings was selected for ease of maintenance, longevity, and to contrast with the rich colours of the adjacent nineteenth century listed buildings. At the base of the tower the uninterrupted 3 storey glazed restaurant/bar adds animation at street level.
