TYPOLOGY : Commercial Retail | CLIENT : Private Developer | LOCATION : Fordsburg, Johannesburg | YEAR : 2017

In the heart of the retail district of Fordsburg, this building was commissioned by the client to accommodate a retail floor level with further upper level for a whole sale business. The intention was to incorporate the architectural character of the area, by creating a colonnaded walkway to allow for pedestrian passerby traffic, whilst still maintaining a contemporary aesthetic. Like its historical precedent of Johannesburg, the corner is made the focus to engage with the customer.
