MARSHALL HOUSE

OUT WITH THE ORDINARY

Completing Spring 2020. Reserve yours now.

Marshall House is a unique development of 5 remarkable warehouse apartments, located in the heart of Birmingham city centre.

No boring, bland boxes here – these are thoughtfully design-led homes – so you can be proud of where you live.

Coppertree have taken the heart and soul of the building known as Marshall House and turned it into an exclusive selection of industrial style apartments and duplexes. Where other developers would have knocked down the building and built soulless shells, Coppertree have developed the beauty within. They have worked hard to retain many original characteristics of the building: staggeringly high ceilings, crittall-effect window frames, large open spaces and plenty of natural light.

Marshall House is a very different development.

Reanimate not decimate

By working with the shape of the original building, the developers have been able to maximise the space within the apartments to create beautiful places to live. 

All of the apartments have generous proportions and plenty of open plan living space, this paired with the impressive square footage makes for apartments that feel generous in size. Not only this, but the apartments comes with plenty of storage space, so your living area can be for doing precisely that: living.

Virtual tours are available for every property, contact us in order to take a wander around.

THE INTERIORS

All materials both look and feel exceptional. Each and every detail has been carefully considered; from the hand-crafted door pulls, and artisan worktops, to the high quality Dowsing & Reynolds light switches, sockets and door handles.

These elements and other luxury touches come together to create a modern and cutting-edge industrial design that reflects both the city’s past and the direction it’s heading.

Restoring exposed brickwork, cleaning up and making a feature out of the original beams and polishing the current concrete floors keeps the industrial aesthetic of the building’s past, without being overwhelming.

Taking inspiration from modernistic Scandinavian design, the apartments encompass a simple, clean and functional environment that still provides space to bring some individuality to your home.

The mixture of sophisticated industrial aesthetics and Scandinavian living influences come together to create something truly original in Birmingham City Centre.

THE INSPIRATION

Working with local craftsmen and development teams, Coppertree is playing its part in order to improve and restore the area, starting with this building. Surpassing its former aesthetic while preserving the most notable architectural influences to create one of the most desirable places to live for generations to come.

The attention to detail for the living spaces combines the very highest specifications with the rejuvenated exterior to present a remarkable opportunity to take a seat in the heart of Birmingham’s flourishing city centre.

THE HISTORY

Styled in the Art Deco style popularised in the 1920s and 30s, Marshall House combines the perfunctory modernist approach to architecture in the 1950s with the fashions of the earlier period to create a stand out bookmark in the evolution of Birmingham’s vibrant cityscape.

The building has seen Birmingham’s post-war slums torn down and replaces by low rise house and towering flat which in turn, at the turn of the millennium, have been replaced or improved through programmes of sustained investment into England’s 2nd city.

The results are clear to see. The efforts of all those who came to Birmingham, from near and far throughout recent history serving as a testament to how hard work has not only sustained Birmingham as a great city but made the success seen today possible.

THE LOCATION

A short walk from New Street Station, the Colmore Business District, Snowhill Station, the site for HS2, the new HSBC headquarters, Grand Central and the Bullring – this location is one of the most enviable throughout Birmingham (if not the whole UK). A glance to the right of your new front door and you will see one of Birmingham’s latest design icons, The Cube, glistening in the sun like a beckoning beacon to this thriving area.
