The Filaments is a Build to Rent development on Gore Street in Greater Manchester. Located a stone’s throw from Salford station & a thriving new quarter of New Bailey TEN are working with Grainger Plc to deliver a development of 375 apartments with over 6500 square ft of amenity space.
As our second BTR development for Grainger in Manchester, it was important for us to make the project unique, with its own style and personality. The design journey began with a broad vision anchored on two key design concepts: promoting resident well-being through design & bringing touches of the city’s industrial history to the interior in a sophisticated way.
The ground floor lobby mixes contemporary furniture with eclectic rugs, textiles and greenery to create a welcoming feel that is more akin to a living room than a formal reception, encouraging visitor to relax & unwind. Loft-style triple height space has been softened by introducing a ribbon of timber panelling that weaves behind the reception and up the staircase. Custom joinery has been designed to be multi-functional and adaptable to day-to-day use or pop-up events.
