Get Living London - New Maker Yards, Manchester

The Brief

New Maker Yards at Middlewood Locks provides Manchester’s current influx of urban adventurers, students and young professionals with 800 modern new homes in the heart of Salford Central, with excellent travel links into Manchester City and Greater Manchester. Once complete, the extraordinary new development will be the largest build-to-rent development outside of London. 

Working with developer Get Living, Distinction Contracts were awarded the tender for the first phase of the project, fully furnishing the first 275 homes. The development includes an array of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom properties furnished according to three meticulously crafted design intents.

From Concept to Samples

Distinction Group worked in collaboration with the developer to produce the three separate schemes, before fully manufacturing and installing all the furniture for this unique property.

The Finished Items

From natural materials in neutral hues, to statement pieces in vibrant materials the unique build-to-rent apartments at Middlewood Locks were designed to facilitate modern living, however its residents may choose to manifest it. Creatives can opt for a more pared back scheme, a refined blank canvas of sorts on which they can inject their own individuality. 

At the other end of the spectrum, the development boasts interior design schemes fit to bursting with an abundance of character for the modern Metropolitan renter.
