South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards:
Award for Innovative Excellence in Property Development:
Retail Category - Design Quarter Lifestyle Shopping Centre, Fourways, undertaken in joint venture with VIVID ARCHITECTS.
One of the first retail developments in Fourways, Johannesburg, this project explores the opportunity to exploit the normally benign climate of the city. Interior and exterior spaces open into and from each other, which is a departure from the standard air-conditioned retail development normally associated with South Africa. The development appears to have successfully stood the test of time, more than a decade after its inception.
