Norfolk Park Green Homes

Sheffield

Norfolk Park Green Homes

Fondly known locally as ‘Ballamory’ after the BBC children’s television programme, this housing scheme has raised people’s aspirations for their part of the city.

Norfolk Park Green Homes is part of a larger site that once featured poor quality 1960s tower blocks. Local councillor John Robson explains that the new scheme has “established a template for future building in Sheffield” by creating a variety of housing that is attractive and environmentally responsive.

Just a mile from the city centre, Norfolk Park Green Homes offers fantastic sweeping views of the city centre from homes that are contemporary and distinctive. The scheme offers residents a greener way of living and cheaper household running costs, earning praise for its ambitious approach to environmental performance.

The success of Norfolk Park Green Homes proves that a passionate client, a talented design team and a committed local community can combine to create well designed places. The scheme lifts people’s spirits and enhances their everyday lives, even on a rainy and windy day in Sheffield.
