Waterfall – Attacq has welcomed Schneider Electric South Africa, Wisetech Global and Trans Africa Projects to their new offices in Waterfall City.
The design of the Allandale building and office interiors set a new contemporary standard for workspaces in Gauteng’s rapidly growing new city, Attacq CEO Morné Wilken said on Tuesday.
The Allandale building comprises three basement levels of parking and four office levels above ground. The design makes use of landscaped berms and grand staircases to take up the substantial slope across the site. The result is that the building starts to merge with (and emerge from) its site, according to architect Luke Chandler of the Aevitas Group.
“Waterfall City is developed as a live, work and play urban space where people can enjoy a balanced lifestyle in a pleasant urban development setting that takes both people’s needs and that of the environment into account. This philosophy reached beyond pure environmentally sensitive construction but is embedded in the total holistic urban design,” said Wilken.
