The Cube Lofts Apartments, Cowbridge Road, Cardiff

The Developer / Builder ANDTON Properties appointed Gallese Design to provide Performance Design requirements and maintain a 'concept guardian' role for the duration of the project.

The client did not have a 'green' engineering aspiration and the project was very much function over form - cost driven. Notwithstanding the budget, the apartments were all sold and let off plan and the tenant turnover is considered lower than expected

Building description

Three upper floors are timber frame, block and render painted finish with cedar cladding feature panels.
