Albert Park Curved Pleated Facade, AdeB Architects

Architect: Alfred de Bruyne

Image credits: Jaime Diaz-Berrio

Albert Park Curved Pleated Facade is a sensitive addition to an intact single storey, polychrome Edwardian villa. The heritage overlay ensured the retainment and restoration of the fine existing residence. Additions comprise a distinct two level extension and a separate complementary garage studio with a central sun filled courtyard. The wide side lane presents the project with great visibility and presence. 

The metallic Deep Bronze Pearl powdercoat finish of the pleated facade is a soft counterpoint to the cool grey of the slate roof. Sun movement animates the curved facade and the light, shadow effect created by the perforated, pleated profiles, accentuating the curved forms of the additions.

The panellised compressed sheet side fence and garage door is painted in Western Myall and mimics the charcoal tones of the rustic and saw cut bluestone. The rendered walls and trims in the strong tones of Monument and Mt Eden completes the colour composition.
