Soweto remains commercially unsupported in terms of Wholesale Facilities with transport costs causing further tariffs on goods. This proposal Deals with the three subsistence items Dairy, Fresh Produce & Meat. The conceptual analysis shown indicates primarily the vehicular reticulation of both the Wholesale Deliveries and Retail Purchases around 16 500m2 of refrigerated spaces under roof.







  
  
  
   THE SHARK LIFE CENTRE

The practice was approached by the non-profit conservation group: Shark Life, to design a structure that could provide for the first large scale inland aquarium focused around increasing the awareness of conserving the country's shark heritage. The building was to be multi-purpose to allow for additional functions beyond the aquarium itself and hence the design included for retail, offices and exhibition spaces.

The firm was appointed to design a Generic Secondary School for the Gauteng Department of Education.
