Sheffield Buildings

This page contains a selection of major Sheffield building designs, with links to individual project pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Sheffield Architecture, but additions are always welcome.

We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across West Yorkshire. The focus is on contemporary West Yorkshire buildings but information on traditional architecture is also welcome.
