Project size 4 700m² office area

Forming part of the prestigious Ridgeside Office Park, this 4700 m2 office building was designed for Shepstone & Wylie Attorneys.

The design is the first in KwaZulu-Natal and the second in South Africa to achieve a four star Green Star SA Office v1 Design and As Built rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).
Our brief was to maximise on the magnificent east-facing sea views, whilst using the principles of the green star rating, as set out by the GBCSA. The architectural response to the site and brief was to create a better environment for the office workers, resulting in a more environmentally sound place. Passive climatic control elements, as well as energy saving design have all been implemented where possible in order to respond to the principles of "sustainable" architecture.
