Park Hill Flats Sheffield.

Posted in Uncategorized by humanendeavour photography on November 17, 2010

The Park Hill Flats, a social housing estate in Sheffield, were inspired by Le Corbusiers Unite d Habitation and were viewed as revolutionary at the time of construction. They were built on the site that previously occupied back to back housing. The flats were described as streets in the sky, with wide gangways that a milk float could drive along. The flats are currently undergoing regeneration with most of the estate boarded up but with several tennants still living in some of the flats.
