Reflecting the colors of Cabra
Responding to the vibrant colour palettes of the surrounding area, a system of perforated
metal balconies offer an opportunity to enliven the scheme while not compromising on daylight to the units within. Hues of blue and green progress from a bold base to lighter upper levels,
grounding the scheme in its context.
Layering of Landscapes
Throughout the design process, attention has been given to the need for high quality play and amenity spaces for residents. In response, the stepping down of the building from west to
east allows for the creation of a hierarchy of external communal amenity areas.
These range from extensive ground floor landscaping with benches, play infrastructure, and larger planting, to roof level gardens from level 04-07, complete with informal sheltered play areas created by the roof pitches along the east elevation.
