Salford Housing

Barton Willmore entered a competition to design a visionary family housing scheme in the heart of the Greengate area of Salford, Manchester.

The submission draws upon two primary concepts: the lifecycle of a home and the importance of a sense of community. Fundamental to the design concept is the relationship between the industrial heritage of the site and the proposed sustainable ‘green’ living approach.
