Lindsay Road




Lindsay Road is a development of 35 new homes on the former Deerlands School site in Parson's Cross, Sheffield. Fat won the commission through a joint bid with developer Great Places and the project forms part of Sheffield City Council's Market Renewal programme.

The houses are laid out as a series of terraces arranged around a large public garden. Subtly shifting variations of brick pattern and colour animate the facades and distinguish individual houses within the terraces. Planting, variations in paving texture and colour and other elements mediate between the houses and the park to form a pedestrian orientated homezone.

The design is aiming to achieve the ambitious targets of Eco-Homes Very Good, 10% of energy supplied by renewable sources and CABE Design for Life Silver standard. The scheme successfully won planning permission in September 2009 and is currently under construction.
