Nedbank No5 Silo 

Date: 2016
Location: VA Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa
Client: Nedbank
Category: Commercial

This was a Grey shell project for Nedbank at the V&A Waterfront
in the Western Cape for the Learning and Development Centre
which had to relocate from Foreshore and Clock Tower.

Materials chosen for the building consist of raw concrete block work, unitised glass and tile cladding, sheer glass curtain walling, rough cut timber panelling, exposed steel structural members, steel framing and grillages, cobble and flagstone paving, bold ‘warehouse signage’ and ‘street lighting’. The brief also called for natural ventilation, as far as was deemed feasible. Vast extract fans appear at high level at both street ends and signify the intention of the consciously chosen language of the design proposed.
