It is an approximately 15,000 sqm, 13 Storey mixed-use building with 3 additional floors of basement parking. The structure of the existing 4 storey building, previously a bank, is being retained and added onto.
The design aesthetic celebrates the history of the original building as a banking institute. The deep facebrick façade creates an impression of strength and resilience, which is softened by the greenery along the façade.
The building then defragments at the top into a minimalist crown, which creates deep landscaped roof gardens in which to enjoy the views of the Johannesburg skyline.
