Creating space for an NGO hub within an existing building in the CBD of Johannesburg
Let's go Jozi
Located opposite the Metro Mall on Bree Street, the project was done in collaboration with Let's go Jozi - an organisation providing aftercare for children attending school in the inner-city. The aim was to create a safe space within an existing building, thus creating space within existing space.
The design solution consisted of a wall partition with multiple functions. Apart from the conventional function of a wall providing enclosure, it is also designed to provide seating, pin-up space and a visual link to the inside where the same wall becomes the shelving and counter space.
