Cargo Lane Terraces
A raw blend of modern building elements, textures and materials have been juxtaposed against the fabric of an existing façade, a portion of which has been retained to recognize its intrinsic value within the streetscape.
Cargo Lane utilizes diverse palette of materials including steel, concrete and metal panelling within the design detailing and articulation to acknowledge and respect the sites relationship to previous industrial uses.
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.
