High density four-storey block of nine townhouses and six flats flanking a raised courtyard garden plus three commercial units at ground level

The site borders the local conservation area to the south and east and is located within an established inner suburb, adjacent to the Sheffield General Cemetery.

This high density project of nine townhouses flanking a raised courtyard garden, all above a shared semi basement car park, located to take advantage of the sloping site.

Three commercial units at ground level with six apartments and an 180m2 penthouse above are located within a four-storey block that fronts Cemetery Road. The elevations addressing the conservation area are clad in locally sourced traditional Yorkshire stone

The internal arrangements of the two blocks of houses are configured to maximise privacy between neighbours with the principal habitable rooms of the easterly block facing the staircases and ancillary accommodation to the rear across the courtyard.
