Southport Halifax

RAW is designing Halifax’s first loft-style condo development.  The building’s aesthetic are a nod to the city’s rich shipping history – and an exciting indication of things to come. Located on Barrington Street next to the historic South End, just minutes from downtown, the innovative building is clad in corrugated metal reminiscent of shipping containers, for an old-school industrial look that’s new, urban, and completely inspired.

The outside rooftop area features a repurposed shipping container, which will contain a long dining table with custom overhead lighting for communal dining. This space has outdoor seating and a barbecue, and a landscaped area using natural flowers, all overlooking Halifax. Inside, an “extended living room” common area for residents to relax and interact with one another in modern, comfortable space. Amenities inside include an indoor gaming area with a fireplace, pool table, and other entertainment.
