Elisabeth Mill, which was once a thriving Spinning Mill in the Reddish area of Stockport had sadly become derelict and rundown but in 2017, DeTrafford acquired the Mill and it has now been reimagined and sensitively restored for many years to come.
And whilst the external facade still reflects the industrious past, the interior has now been transformed into new, contemporary apartment living.
At the heart of the mill is a communal central atrium, flooding the area with natural daylight with industrial-esque steel framework encasing the space.
As the project neared it’s completion, it was our pleasure to be invited to install the all important biophilic finishing touches.
The plants look absolutely fantastic in this setting benefitting from both natural light and the minimalist interior design.
Naturally, the atrium will provide the perfect atmospheric climate for the plants to thrive.
Strelitzia and Trachycarpus standing at over 2m, look fantastic in their rust coloured containers.
A mature Trachycarpus in square rust container positioned on the ground floor, looks very chic against the pale grey stone flooring detail.
And in the distance, a large Osmanthus Dome – over 3m tall, planted into another square rust container adds further botanical interest.
Additional live planting was added to grey troughs hung from the steel railings, in fact, look closer and you can see one of plant technicians making sure that the plants are and (most importantly), will stay looking green and healthy!
