Pinstone Street

Sheffield, UK

A bustling urban street with a mix of old and modern architecture. Red brick buildings designed by Leonard Design feature various storefronts, while people walk on the sidewalk. In the background, a modern glass structure contrasts with the historic style. A few cars are on the road.

Comprising the new build boutique office of Athol House and the retrofit of the historic Laycock House, our project on Pinstone Street preserves historic identity and enhances a prominent street frontage within a city centre conservation area.
