158 Jan Smuts
The exterior of this old office building required a unique uplift in order to bring it to date with its improving surroundings in the growing commercial and residential node of Rosebank
A low cost, low maintenance refurbishment of the entrance lobby at 158 Jan Smuts Office Building. We found this space to be a bit tricky due to the limited space and existing features however certain design principles were applied in order to create a simple yet elevated design.
Two elements ground the strength of the refurb in this small space, the beautiful hand painted skyline of Johannesburg and the Corten look steel applied to the external entrance wall. These contrast again the black painted facebrick of the Entrance façade and work together to present a modern yet timeless design
