About This Project

A high end residential development for TMM Holdings. The proposed design is situated between two prominent intersection in Muckleneuk, Pretoria filling a whole city block. To address the scale of the development the design wraps itself around these corners while recessing back at the lower levels to soften the road interface. The building has a strong presence within its context and is envisioned as a local landmark. Large expanses of glass are used to create transparency and lightness while movable timber louvres provide privacy when needed.
