Slinn Street, Sheffield, was a self-build conversion of an old joiner’s workshop in Sheffield into a new home by Thread Director Anya and her partner Joe.

Unable to find an existing house in Sheffield that met their needs and budget Anya and Joe bought a derelict workshop to convert into their home. Working on a tight budget and completing much of the work themselves the workshop is now a stunning two-bedroom home with a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area as well as a separate study. The design celebrates the buildings history as well as telling the story of its new incarnation with well-crafted additions.

Slinn Street won the Best Residential Project and Best Conservation Project in the Sheffield Design Awards 2016.
