Design process

Matthew Lloyd Architects were appointed as the design team for Norfolk Park Green Homes following a design competition, judged by a panel of professionals and included a local exhibition.

Matthew Lloyd Architects developed their initial ideas for the site by pairing the area’s main asset – the broad, sweeping views of Sheffield city centre – with a strong environmental ethos and distinctive architectural approach. The built scheme is largely unaltered from the original concept. The most significant change was to create more variation within the street scene, now one of the scheme’s most positive features.

Norfolk Park Green Homes was completed in summer 2008. Management of public amenity areas is contracted out to a local landscape firm with Places for People taking responsibility for residents’ homes.
