Alba Apartments

Rationale

‘The ground floor facade, free from structural constraints, presents as a fully-glazed retail component that activates the street frontage. A linear canopy separates this element from the residents above, maintaining a comfortable scale for pedestrians within the public realm.

A robust and sober polished concrete podium forms the main body of the building and defines the mass of the street façade. The strategic appearance of greenery over the podium, along with the introduction of a pergola element, contributes to a seamless transition to upper storeys. Lush greenery and climbing plants provide a pleasant outlook for residents and a sense of protection from the environment.

The upper floors are tied together by a continuous balustrade ribbon, a play of solid white render and clear glass contributes to the ethereal and neutral perception of the materiality of the building.’
