Balwin Properties’ new headquarters on Corlett Drive in Birnam, Johannesburg, has been awarded a 6-Star Green Star Office Design v1.1 certification from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).
Located in an urbanised context adjacent to the Melrose Arch development, the project was a major refurbishment of the iconic Creative Council building along the M1 highway.
Designed by Paragon Architects, the redevelopment saw the removal of three cones and the creation of two new floors under the elevated concrete box. An additional roof space will be created to accommodate a gym, meeting areas, and a canteen and the lettable area of the building will increase from 2 200m2 to more than 6 000m2.
