This prestigious office development, situated within the Ridgeside office park precinct, offers excellent exposure to the M41 arterial. The green star rated building comprises three levels of grade A office accommodation straddled over a podium of two full levels of on-site parking and topped with a shared client function and meeting area at roof level. An overtly functional yet elegant architectural character unfolds through a simple articulated form positioned over a carefully proportioned podium and settled within a lush indigenous landscape which carefully integrates the development within both its environment and the office park context. The office program is aligned to the northern boundary achieving optimal climatic orientation, and elevated to offer excellent interstitial views to the Indian ocean and Durban CBD. A simple cultivated palette of textured solidity juxtaposed against vast glazed apertures, articulated for maximum climatic efficiency, asserts a discerning relationship between solid and void while carefully considered contemporary, warm internal finishes imbue the sophistication of the development.
