The Lansdowne is an exciting new purpose-built private rented scheme located in Birmingham’s Edgbaston Village. As the first build-to-rent development in this region, The Lansdowne presents a new way of living for those renting in Birmingham. Managed by Long Harbour’s in-house management platform Way of Life, the scheme comprises 206 apartments, including 18 duplexes – each with its own private terrace – and up to 15,000 sq ft of private residents amenity space and car parking.


The aim of the project was to create a vibrant and inviting living environment for young professionals, using rich colours and materials. The interior design inspiration for each space was taken from the industrial heritage of Birmingham, ‘City of a Thousand Trades’.

Raw materials were used throughout the scheme and provided a backdrop for several vintage furniture pieces, which TFP sourced to contact standard through our suppliers. To create a truly unique look and feel, we also worked closely with key suppliers to custom make accessories such as rugs.

What the client thought

What really impressed us was their product suggestions, putting forward pieces which both hit our budget and design brief. Their brand buying power allowed us access to the entire furniture market including vintage and one-off bespoke items. This allowed us total control of the design and gave a uniqueness to our space. They were a pleasure to work with, professional and organised. There is no doubt we will work with TFP again in the future!
