Dixie Project, Bute Street

Intelle were selected to deliver a new high quality residential scheme in the heart of Cardiff Bay. The project, known as Dixie, consisted of 43 contemporary 1 and 2 bedroom apartments which embody modern design and living. The development is situated in the Bute Street area and the architectural design reflects the history of the conservation area and the surrounding buildings.

This project consisted of the demolition of the existing buildings and the construction of a new reinforced concrete undercroft car park with a four storey lightweight steel structure containing a mix of apartments including duplex units. The envelope construction is a mix of render, timber cladding and a feature Vieo cladding to the stairwell with balcony and roof terrace space plus a communal terrace within the central courtyard. The external works includes new drainage, incoming services and the reinstatement of footpaths around the development.
Internally the finishes reflect an innovative design with POD kitchens and up to the minute technology with a ‘Tech Hub’ for modern living.
