* as SVA(Durban)


In implementing a program of upgrading and extending of existing hotels in the chain of hotels , the new genre of City Lodge Hotels was undertaken. The hotel at Isando, Johannesburg was increased by 60 keys, in a new three storey building, which is linked to the end of an existing bedroom wing. The new wing formed a right angle junction with the existing, therefore presenting the opportunity to differentiate and define the linking of old and new buildings. The junction is expressed by a glazed corner tower, incorporating vertical circulation.

The existing public space was increased in area and refurbished. This included a new entrance canopy and foyer and meeting room facilities.
