How we worked with a sustainability focused developer to create two eco-friendly BTR schemes across Greater Manchester

Developer: Rise Homes
Development: Build to Rent
Location: Salford

Furnishing BTR Apartments

We worked with RISE Homes to deliver Stockport’s first BTR scheme, The Mailbox: an urban village consisting of 117 apartments built on the historic site of the former Royal Mills sorting office, surrounding a stunning atrium. Complete with a unique and vivid biophilic 18m- high living wall that covers part of all four elevations and further adds to the buildings character and purpose.

We further collaborated with RISE Homes Ltd to deliver another sustainable BTR project in central Manchester, The Depot. This time creating an enticing selection of show apartments aimed at the young family and young professionals’ market. We created a selection of spaces that perfectly balanced comfort and style, complete with a variation of carefully curated contemporary pieces.

As The Mailbox was Stockport’s’ first BTR scheme, it set a benchmark for the standard of enhanced living expected from a BTR. We needed procure and supply furniture and accessories that matched the aspiration of the scheme and elevated it further.

Stockport's first build to rent development

As The Mailbox was Stockport’s’ first BTR scheme, it set a benchmark for the standard of enhanced living expected from a BTR. We needed procure and supply furniture and accessories that matched the aspiration of the scheme and elevated it further.

We curated the furniture for the one and two bedroom apartments to be sympathetic to the building’s surroundings but also strike a contemporary and modern tone to suit the aesthetic for a young professional market.

Keeping to a subtle colour palette of smoky greys and deep greens, we offset the colours with polished black woodgrain textures and metal finishes to give the right balance of colour, texture and material.
