LOT-EK was commissioned by Propertuity to design a live-work building with ground floor retail in the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg. As a leader in urban regeneration, over the past few years Propertuity has single-handedly transformed the heart of the Maboneng precinct into a vital hub of leisure, cultural and commercial life. Our building introduces also housing in this urban mix.
The massing - entirely made of upcycled ISO shipping containers - is organized in a V generating a triangular open yard with swimming pool and sundeck.
All residential units are studio apartments varying in size between 40 and 60 square meters and include a private outdoor space along the walkways that look into the yard on all floors.
