Consulmet Offices, Johannesburg

A redevelopment of an existing building with extensive commercial exposure; the new offices illustrate the client's ethos and further extends the highway 'architecture as a billboard' continuum. The value in the existing building was location and as such the structure was rigorously manipulated to formalise an efficient adaptation of an office environment and allow for future growth. The principal west orientation was used as an opportunity to evoke the mineral mining business of the client and to highlight workable technologies in the facades. Openable sliding screens of varied perforated aluminium are set within horizontally exaggerated steel beams, creating a veil to the existing building and providing individual control to the harsh lighting and capture interest through branding. The semi-public spaces form the transition between existing and new and are marked by controlled clerestorey articulation and circulation cores. The materials echo the practices of the client and the industrial palette influences both the external forms and internal volumes.
