Hillsborough Interchange Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc/ SYPTE

Following on from Race Cottam’s involvement with Sheffield’s Victorian Hillsborough Barracks and work with Sheffield Supertram, the practice was commissioned to design the new bus/ tram interchange on the site of a former petrol filling station in the grounds of Hillsborough Barracks.

Designed to facilitate the integration of competing bus and tram services, the interchange enables buses to terminate and transfer passengers to the tram system.  We held extensive dialogue with local MPs, trade associations and local traders in order to gain support for the scheme and minimise potential disruption. The historic setting required the design to deviate from the corporate standard of SYPTE to a bespoke design to compliment the style of the Race Cottam designed Hillsborough Barracks mall.
