Burlington House is a prestigious development of 91 luxury waterfront apartments in the heart of the Piccadilly Basin in Central Manchester. A joint venture between Highgrove Group and Town Centre Securities PLC, it is the epitome of contemporary city centre living for the young professional market.
The client wanted a high-end look and feel for Burlington House through tailor-made creative furniture solutions that would differentiate the apartments from other private residential schemes in the area. This would ensure its appeal to the target market of young professionals with high levels of disposable income and be able to command a premium rent in return.
The scheme incorporated the lobby entrance area – critical for that all-important first impression – together with the 91 one, two & three- bedroomed apartments throughout the building.
Previous experience with other suppliers had proved to be restrictive with limitations in range and colour choice. Critical to the success of this project was the integrity of the initial design, which required a flexible and bespoke furniture approach within an agreed budget.
With the utmost attention to detail, SouthernsBroadstock interpreted the design vision from the original CGI to create a tailor-made yet budget-friendly scheme. Working closely with the client and inspired by high-end high street furniture that the client loved, SouthernsBroadstock’s wide range of products and in-house UK-based manufacturing facilities meant that all furniture could be supplied or made to measure and in the exact colour the client specified. SouthernsBroadstock was able to deliver precisely what the client wanted and still meet the budget and time frame requirements required.
We loved working with SouthernsBroadstock. They listened to what we wanted and interpreted our vision into this breath-taking suite of apartments. Their flexible approach, wide range of furniture and the ability to create tailor-made products means they have delivered the exact high-end finish we hoped to achieve with this scheme
