Truval-slider Truval-slider 801. Truval House Mixed-Used - Additions & Alterations Cross-block-cross Mixed-Used - Additions & Alterations

Truval House

ERF 4544. Central Business District. Johannesburg. South Africa.

Client: Nutech Construction
Program: Mixed-Used Additions & Alterations
Status: Council Approval  – April 2018
Value: R 30 Million (US $1 650 000)
Area: 11 850m²

The project was localized within the Johannesburg central business district, but out of the intense commercial radius of the inner city. As such, it was considered suitable for residential reconfiguration to provide affordable accommodation in close proximity to employment opportunities within the city.

The brief was for the convergence of two seperate buildings with a view to recalibrating the 18-storey heritage structures into a maximum number of residential units , within the exiting footprint.

Collectively, the ground floor level was targeted for commercial application, while the remaining levels were to be optimally utilized to provide accommodation of varying typologies and catering for varying budgetary parameters.

Preservation of the heritage footprint and facade and the compounded task of generating a cohesive aesthetic for the two differing structures, framed the exterior development of the project. Considerations of ventilation, natural light, residential and structural viability within an existing building were addressed.
