Glassworks is a small two-family self-build house development in Kelham Island. Built on the site of a former glassworks, the project made use of a brownfield site to contribute to this most sought-after neighbourhood. The houses are of modern design with echoes of international influence and drawing from the local heritage which shapes its immediate surroundings.

This was a great project to work on but one that came with a set of very specific challenges. Not only was there the site’s past, which everybody was determined had to be preserved, but there was also the fact that we had to create two family homes in what is actually quite a small space. We came up with a design that filled all Nik and Jon’s wishes, a brilliantly contemporary pair of properties that also pays tribute to the story of the site and, through the use of materials, to the bigger story of Sheffield’s industrial heritage.

The 80-metre dam, which once provided power for the corn mill, has also been cleaned and restored, providing a haven for kingfishers and other wildlife.
