LOMBARDY CORPORATE PARK

A new office block in the east of Pretoria, commanding spectacular views of the surrounding residential areas from its roof garden. The two wings of the building are connected with a bridge housing communal boardrooms, from where the complete glass facades makes optimal use of the views. Office windows are shielded from harsh, direct sunlight by custom designed sunscreens made of low maintenance composite aluminium panels, laser cut to cast intricate patterns on the building’s skin in the afternoon and early morning. The rooftop houses a staff canteen and bar in a lush garden setting, with composite timber deck and triangular shading elements, which echoes the triangular cutouts of the sunscreens.
