Cape Town Station 2010

2012
The intervention on Strand Street is more akin to an urban scaling device than habitable architecture, and is seen as an act to humanise and bring a tactile quality to the neomodern apartheid-inspired architecture of Cape Town Station. Historically subservient to the dictates of rail dominant ideology, the design actively seeks to create a user-centric solution for the integration and facelift for the deck- originally envisaged as part of an agreed
upgrade for the World Cup 2010 and to enhance the public environment in the CBD.
 
The Cape Town Station was a Joint Venture (Archstation) with MDL (lead designer), DHK, Jakupa and Henri Comrie.
