We connect local communities with the design and research expertise of the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield.

Our space in Sheffield city centre hosts a programme of teaching, exhibitions and events focused on the past, present and future of Sheffield. We are a founding member of the Urban Rooms Network.

We work on participatory research projects in partnership with University academics and community partners. We develop co-produced research in the built environment through creative community engagement.

Our project office provides design services to community, public and third sector organisations on socially engaged projects that can really make a difference to local buildings, streets and neighbourhoods.
