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. he apartment block names reference the Salford iron works as founded by Bateman and Sherratt in 1800 (Forge, Bellows, Quarry and Charcoal). Our belief 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 an 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 fee. The bedrooms were kept neutral with grey bedheads, feature cushions were in blue to bedroom one to echo the water of the canal while bedroom two had sage green to create a calming space to retreat away from city life.

"The use of botanics highlighted in the artwork and colour scheme keeps the design young and on trent, perfect for the young professional occupier. The industrial furniture adds interest with textured woods and ironwork, a link to the area's past ironmongery heritage." - Lauren Ashmore, Interior Designer
