PLATFORM_ in Sheffield


PLATFORM_ in Sheffield is redefining communal living within the BTR sector by combining innovative design with unrivalled facilities. This landmark 335-home development is centrally located and has been designed to foster community and connectivity. Each home is equipped with cutting-edge smart technology for a modernised living experience and is complemented by state-of-the-art amenities that cater to a diverse demographic.

The development features multi-functional spaces, such as a private dining room adjacent to a games room, which can be used together for community events or separately, providing flexibility in use. The development also boasts three rooftop terraces, offering expansive outdoor spaces for relaxation and social events, enhancing the communal living experience. Additional spaces include a residents’ lounge and a 'sky' gym on the 11th floor. A significant design feature is the strategic placement of the front desk and back-of-house operations, which maintain a line-of-sight to both the reception and residents' lounge. This design choice enhances security, strengthens the connection between the on-site team and the residents, promotes a sense of community and encourages immediate responsiveness to resident needs. Moreover, PLATFORM_ has achieved 100% EPC B rating, integrating sustainability through photovoltaic panels and extensive biodiversity planting. This project sets new standards in sustainable urban development and community-focused design, making PLATFORM_ a worthy contender for the Best Community Living award. The development reflects PLATFORM_’s commitment to not only build homes but also nurture communities, making it a benchmark in the UK's BTR market.
