ABOUT this project

The brief required the relocation and amalgamation of separate, direct public interface components such as the Traffic Law and the Supply Chain Management departments in the existing building to provide easier, clear access for the public, thereby rationalising the public/private spatial organization. In attempting to address the brief in the context of the existing, mostly concrete structure and various building regulations, the design process revealed the possibility of providing a separate entrance off Loop Street. In addition, this also provided the opportunity to engage the existing building’s facade and interface on an urban level. As this new programme and proposed intervention required an entrance off Loop Street, it meant the existing infill panels of concrete blocks, anti-vagrant pre-cast panels and high level shop fronts had to be removed. These were replaced with a set of full height, glazed, bi parting entrance doors on Loop Street and with shop fronts on Dorp street. Read more on www.stad.co.za
