RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS / Orion Penthouses
CLIENT: Orion Group
CONSTRUCTION VALUE: £1.5m
The project comprises the construction of five triplex penthouse units onto the twentieth floor of the Orion Building, Elma Park, Johannesburg.
Previously an office building, The Orion Building was converted into apartments by another architect, however the the developer was not making an adequate return on investment and approached us for help. We proposed penthouse apartments to the top of the development and a retail development to the base of the tower.
Structure is steel frame fixed down to the existing concrete structure of the Orion Building with masonry and glass infill panels providing far reaching views accross Johannesburg and the surrounding areas.
With the penthouses complete, the retail development is due to commence in the near future.
