DESIGN STRATEGIES

Arctez Architects:

The design allows for the independent functioning of each component of the building while maintaining a single overall design feel. This was achieved by layering retail ground floor while hotel and office space are staked on two towers. This clever zoning of activities ensures no disruptive cross mixing of activities.

Masa Centre

Construction work on the Masa Centre, representing a total investment of P350 million, commenced during the first quarter of 2008. The Masa Centre will officially open its doors to the public in 2010 and introduces many firsts to Botswana. Masa Centre will face out onto the public walkway of the New Central Business District. The Masa Centre will offer the business community seven floors of world class office space. Negotiations are ongoing with several blue chip multinationals to secure space. A 3D movie house will be brought to local audiences by our very own Capital Entertainment Centre (Pty) Ltd., the first of its kind in Africa (outside of South Africa)

KEY SPACES:

  • Total Built Area: 42 205 sqm
  • Holiday Inn Gaborone Hotel
  • Restaurants & Boutiques
  • Casino operated by Gold Reef Resorts
  • 7 Floors of World Class Offices
  • Cinema: 5 Theater 3D Movie House
  • Post Boxes
  • Fully Managed Parking Facility (Interpark)
  • ‘The Interior spaces of Masa Centre are intended to create a ‘cohesive interior’

      Hard luck for me to only read about this one and not know the exact location of the landmark due to not residing in the borders of the country; may somebody help so we make sure we first hand witness the aesthetic character of the project sooner as we get a chance to come around.

      We highly appreciated the design we gives our architectural landscape a another perspective.

    GROPIUS HOUSE / Architect: Walter Gropius / Location: Lincoln, MA, USA / Completion: 1938

    Gropius House

    gropius3

    The home Walter Gropius built for his family soon after moving from to the US from Germany had a dramatic impact on American architecture. Its detailing keeps strongly to the principles of the Bauhaus, which Gropius had founded and directed in Germany, exploiting simple, well-designed but mass-produced fittings for steel wall lights, chromed banisters etc., as well as in the structure of the house (glass block walls complementing the wooden frame and New England clapboarding).

    Boidus Quotes-‘what they say..’

    “Badly designed buildings can crush the spirits of those who live and work in them and, in the case of those that are supposed to have a social purpose, actually defeat the object of the building itself,”
