Cargo Lane Alexandria

05/19/2012

PBD Architects have worked in close collaboration with Bridgelane Property Group in bringing this unique project to fruition.

A raw blend of modern building elements, textures and materials have been juxtaposed against the fabric of an existing fa├žade, a portion of which has been retained to recognize its intrinsic value within the streetscape.

The use of a bold concrete frame along the main Wyndham Street frontage accentuates the building entry, which is broken down via a series of screen louvers and vertical gardens. Fixed timber screen elements and long draping ivy aid in softening the main structural fabric of the development creating a harmonious rhythm of light and shadow within the design.

Alexandria will benefit from a unique development contemporary in design and complimentary to its urban history and immediate context.

The project will comprise of 34 apartments and 8 terrace style dwellings – official sales launch expected late May/ early June 2012.
