Chaka Place

Chaka Place

A competition entry for an office block on an extremely tight site with hard rock at 1.5 m below soil levels.

The challenge was to ensure that the large area of executive offices had sufficient parking despite the soil conditions. A decision was therefore made to design the offices above the three storey ground parking silo.

The building will have a ground floor banking floor and a 1st storey pedestrian connection with existing office building on site. Another challenge was to disguise the above ground parking levels without great expense to the client. This was done by introduction of concrete screens which are angled to also act as a sun shade for the cars.
