Gauteng Institute for Architecture (GIfA) Regional Merit Award:
Sun International Head Office, Sandton
Built at a time of Sandton’s rapid expansion, this building is the flagship for a very large Hospitality company. The building utilises cladding to reflect the sleek nature of the building form, which is further articulated by the use of sun screening devices to the north, east and west. The introduction of vegetation and a podium contribute to the relationship with the street.
