The conceptual design was inspired by the visual language and culture of the vibrant city with its unique flavour and mix-match personality. Many items for the design were sourced from the city, contributing to the concept’s implementation through an authentic initiative to upcycle and reuse objects and non-conventional building media alike, consistent to the personality of the city.

Local artists, furniture and materials were employed to develop an interior concept that functions as an extension of the Jozi city vibe.

The project created a platform for questioning the standard approach to green design by reinterpreting the necessities of a workplace setting, aligning the requirements with the city context and attending to the needs of the specific users.
