Cape Town Electricity House Interior

building
Description

The Electricity House is situated in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD and is bound by Bree Street to the South Easter. The design brief called for a high-quality contemporary building that reinforces the urban context without detracting from the historic surroundings. The building transforms from being a punctured mass into a framed box that turns the Hout and Bree Street corner without overshadowing the adjacent buildings but follows the City slay line. This building is a 5* Green Accredited building.
