You’ve probably realised by now that we’re not as funny as we think we are.
But that’s okay, because we never set out to be funny. We set out to tackle climate change, and we make sure that every place we build does exactly that.
If you want to live somewhere that radically reduces your carbon footprint, you might be interested to know that we’ve just released a couple of unique Mews houses in the iconic Green Lane Works Clocktower building.
The Two Mews Houses in Green Lane Works Clocktower are a unique blend of restored heritage features and cutting edge sustainable technology.
Incredible views across Horseman Square, spacious living & dining rooms, dedicated storage space and en-suites mean these homes aren’t your average city centre homes.
But that’s just the start. Exposed brickwork, void spaces and Scandinavian design create amazing spaces that you couldn’t find anywhere else.
The two Mews houses are restored from the incredible heritage of Green Lane Works. That means they’ve got bags of character and a special feel. But it also means we couldn’t build them with the ultra-high levels of insulation, air-tightness, and with MVHR systems, to create houses that hardly require heating.
To bring these buildings back to life in a sustainable way, so they can still be run in a way that is carbon neutral, we had to come up with a different solution.
That’s why the Mews houses are heated with renewable biomass. One extremely efficient biomass boiler supplies hot water for radiators, showers and taps to everyone.
So what are the Mews houses?
Mews house 1
This unique Mews House brings together heritage features with cutting-edge sustainable technology, to create a place full of character that doesn’t harm the planet.
3 large bedrooms, each with space for double beds, large wardrobes and dressing tables means loads of space for family & guests.
A house bathroom and en-suite with shower means no more fighting for who gets the first shower in the mornings.
The kitchen with breakfast bar looks out onto the idyllic Horseman Square and across to the newly restored Birch Landing. Its exposed brickwork and large windows give the room its own unique feel. The utility/storage room means a separate space for your washing machine, keeping things tranquil.
The huge living and dining room makes this Mews House perfect for entertaining. Its impressive size means even with a large dining table and sofas for relaxing on, there’s still plenty of standing room for when your guest list gets far longer than planned.
Mews house 1 has already been reserved by a member of Citu 52.
Mews house 2
With its own entrance to Horseman Square, elegant interiors and vast amounts of space, this two bedroom Mews House can be your perfect base in Kelham Island.
The huge kitchen, living and dining room is partially separated by the central staircase, giving a light, airy feel, thanks to the large windows. This allows you to create two distinct spaces with their own unique look.
The two large bedrooms looking out onto Horseman Square and a spacious house bathroom mean you won’t be short on room. But for the fashionistas of Sheffield – two wardrobes just won’t do. That’s why we’ve built a dressing room alongside the master bedroom’s en-suite with shower.
As if that wasn’t enough, to really add to the wow factor, the double height void space at the end of hallway looks down into your living area, so you can wave like an emperor to your guests below.
