Béton House Student Art Competition Winner Announced!
At the beginning of March, Homes For Students and Béton House launched a student art competition which ran from March – April 2021 for all student artists based in Sheffield!
The art competition was designed to celebrate 60 years since the completion of the famous Grade II* listed Park Hill development, as well as the recent opening of phase 3 of Park Hill – a student accommodation called Béton House!
What makes Béton House so special is its philosophy of promoting interaction, originally labelled ‘streets in the sky’ when constructed in the late 1950s, the building promotes a wider sense of community.
Whether that be with your neighbours or other residents who are all part of the Park Hill mix, you’ll all feel like one big family!
The property is surrounded by artwork and really echoes the title of Sheffield being the ‘Northern Capital of Cool’.
From original pieces such as Otis Mensah’s poem ‘We Were Never Derelict’ etched into concrete installations and benches to the surrounding artwork from the likes of Kid Acne, Park Hill is a hub of creativity making it the perfect subject for a student art competition!
Throughout March and April, we gained numerous entries from students on Instagram by asking them to submit their creative interpretation of Park Hill by tagging @betonhouse_hfs and #shapesofparkhill.
The artwork could be in the form of a painting, drawing, sculpture, or photography.
Below are some of the competition entries for you to check out, just take a look at these!
