Nest x Park Hill
We are very excited to announce that the Nest showroom is relocating to the iconic Park Hill in Sheffield.
Opening Autumn 2021, the breath-taking views over the city and proximity to the train station make this the perfect location for our new, dedicated design destination.
At the heart of Europe’s largest Grade II listed development, the Scottish Queen is a landmark building that once housed one of the four original on-site pubs at Park Hill. The space spans an impressive 3,500 sq. ft and includes a basement and terraces to both sides.
Fit-out plans are now underway on the Scottish Queen, which is centrally located close to the Sheffield Parkway, and within walking distance of the train station, making it ideally situated for local customers, as well as those travelling from out of town.
With work expected to complete in Autumn 2021, the new showroom will be open by appointment for residential interior designers, contractors and members of the public; housing fresh and iconic designs from a network of suppliers from all over the world.
A message from our CEO & Founder, Christian Hawley
“If you love concrete and modern brutalist buildings, then it doesn’t get any better, and when I first visited the space during an exhibition a few years ago I knew it would be the perfect location for Nest. I knew there and then that if we ever had the opportunity to acquire the site we would try and make it happen.
The Scottish Queen is a beautiful building at the heart of Park Hill, which in itself is an iconic and historical landmark in Sheffield. Its breath-taking views over the city make it an ideal location for dedicated Nest events and photoshoots, and the building itself perfectly encapsulates Sheffield’s industrial heritage.
It is an ideal base for a business which is rooted locally, and the perfect home for our new, dedicated design destination. Plans are now underway to design and develop the space further and we’re excited to be working towards an Autumn opening.”
More about Park Hill
First built between 1957 and 1962, Park Hill is a landmark Brutalist estate in Sheffield. Inspired by Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Marseille, Park Hill became known for its ‘streets in the sky’ and is Britain’s largest Grade II listed building.
A joint venture between Urban Splash and Places for People, the regeneration of Park Hill began in 2004 and has seen award-winning architects such as Hawkins\Brown, Studio Egret West and Mikhail Riches transform this iconic Brutalist structure.
Amenities already in situ onsite at Park Hill include a vegan/veggie café South Street Kitchen, seating areas and play pieces on the sculpture plinths in the landscaped areas. S1Artspace is also based on-site, convenience store Park Hill Provisions is due to open in the coming months and more retail and leisure operators are expected in the coming year.
Nicky Harries, Senior Commercial Lettings Manager for Park Hill, said: “Nest is an established Sheffield brand and will be a fantastic addition to our thriving community at Park Hill.
The space in the Scottish Queen is ideal for their needs and we are confident it will add to Park Hill becoming even more of a destination, offering an ideal opportunity for those looking for beautifully designed pieces for their home. And of course, it will be great for our residents to have on their doorstep too”.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our new Park Hill showroom very soon. Keep your eyes peeled for more details over the next few months.
