Conversion of Hulton Street Rectory




Salford, Greater Manchester

Project Type






Restoration and Conversion of Existing Rectory in Salford

The commission for the Rectory involved the conversion of the Grade II listed property which had laid vacant for a number of years. Originally designed by Paley and Austin in 1877, the Rectory comprises a Victorian red brick building, dark with lighter dressings, and a traditional timber roof construction with multiple pitches.

Following years of neglect, the property was found to be in a derelict state, requiring a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment to facilitate a sustainable re-use of the building whilst preserving the heritage asset. Historic features such as the arched timber sash windows, the central timber stair and the decorative Victorian floor tiles to the communal hall were carefully restored, adding to the character of the space.

The resulting scheme formed 6no. new elegant, bright and airy apartments, each making the most of the unique features of the historic fabric. Additional features of such as double height mezzanine spaces and spiral stairs added further interest to the uppermost apartments.
