OVERVIEW Forming part of the first phase of the Grade-II listed Park Hill renovation is this wonderful two bedroom City view apartment.Originally built between 1957 and1961 to a design by Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith under the supervision of John Lewis Wormersley, the flats have been the subject of an extensive refurbishment project, shortlisted for the 2013 RIBA Stirling Prize. The current development started in 2009, built to a design by architects Studio Egret West, Hawkins Brown and Grant Associates.
DESIGN Externally, colourful anodised aluminium panels replicate the coloured brick tones of the original façade and reflect the 'streets in the sky' heritage.

original Brutalist heritage.
