Located at a prominent intersection in central Umhlanga, the desire for this company was to create an iconic Head Office. Within a strict height restriction governing the site, architectural emphasis was placed on the six storey street frontage. The flush glazed façade forms a continuous ‘skin’ to the office floors articulated at each end with viewing balconies. The fenestration responds to the variable views and solar exposure, developing a distinctive pattern of vision and opaque glass cladding panels. The resultant ‘barcode glazing’ provides an arresting architectural expression creating a unique local landmark. The internal spatial arrangement provides flexible office area, penetrated by a central atrium which provides natural light to the deep space. Simultaneously the atrium provides a dramatic entrance to the building and becomes a dynamic heart and soul for the building. Enhanced sustainability specifications have been implemented to pursue a 4 Star Green Star rating.
