We’re delighted to have played our part in creating the interiors of this stunning Wilde Aparthotel By StayCity at St Peter’s Square in Manchester city centre.  Our in-house design team worked collaboratively with Russell WBHO, StayCity and their architects Leach Rhodes Walker to design, manufacture and install the bedroom and kitchen furniture for the 256 apartments.  Highlights included a clever bed frame design which, when pushed together, forms a king size bed and when pulled apart gives the option of two singles with a small dividing shelf.  The kitchens are a modern design in Egger Natural Kendal Oak with Silestone worktops, with integrated drainer grooves, undermounted sink and space efficient appliances.  The design was developed to be in keeping with the overall colour pallet and smooth-finish aesthetic of the building.

Daniel Murphy, Managing Quantity Surveyor for Russell WBHO, said: “We made the decision to partner with JT Ellis after visiting their factory in Huddersfield and being impressed with the quality of product on offer. It wasn’t only their manufacturing skills and know how that were first class, but also their additional in-house design skills, full project management service and their capacity to store furniture to suit the project schedule. 

“The JT Ellis team has certainly been put to the test, as the project is being delivered during the Covid pandemic to challenging site logistics and timescales, but everyone has met those challenges successfully and the outcome will be a building that is sure to impress visitors when it is fully opened.”
