South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards:
Commercial Office Developments – Merit Award for Alice Lane Phase 2
The second phase of the Alice Lane precinct, situated at 11 Alice Lane in Sandton’s commercial district, achieved a 4-Star Green Star SA Office V1 Design rating in 2013 and a 4-Star Green Star SA Office V1 As-Built rating in 2016. The office building, the home of anchor tenants Sanlam and Santam, accommodates six office floors and seven parking levels. The building also includes showrooms, retail elements, concept stores and a ground floor canteen and auditorium. The conceptual design of the buildings chiseled away at the sculptural forms to generate refined massing and bring sunlight into the public space, essentially using sunlight to create the forms of the buildings and the resulting form of the adjacent piazza.
