We were delighted that our Sellers Wheel student accommodation scheme picked up an award for architecture and was named Building of the Year at the Sheffield Design Awards.
Sellers Wheel was praised by the judges for the elegantly detailed and restrained composition of the new student accommodation block combined with expert conversion treatment of the old building, now home to Tamper café and The Laundry hair salon; which has created a vibrant new semi-public inner courtyard that gives a nod to workshop spaces of the old city.
