Middlewood Locks

The Architect’s vision for this development was to provide for a long-term sustainable, livable community, with strong ties to the local history and character of the area. The apartment block names reference the Salford iron works as founded by Bateman and Sherratt in 1800. Our brief was to bring this history into the interiors using natural materials including warm timbers, rusty weathered tones and cool greys to echo the history of coal usage at the iron rolling mill. In the living room we included a large natural timber topped table with industrial cast iron legs, a feature chair in rusty ochre velvet, dark grey sofa and all chair legs are in black to add that industrial feel.
