Project name: New Tshwane Transport Operating License Administrative Bodies (TOLAB) centre
Client: City of Tshwane
Description: The project called for the design of a new Transport Operating License Administrative Bodies (TOLAB) Centre, to support the existing Tshwane Testing facilities, bordered by Johannes Ramokhoase Street to the north, and in-between the split of E’skia Mphahlele Drive to the east and west
The site is located in close proximity to the Tshwane CBD, accessed predominantly with vehicles and pedestrian access is limited as the site forms an island surrounded by the prominent streets mentioned above. Three major functions are expressed as three easily recognizable forms, linked with an internal, covered pedestrian spine. As the longest sides of the site front west and east, the building responds with solid western and eastern walls and maximum exposure to north is afforded, with access and services situated along the east and west.
