Afrihost required the complete redevelopment of an existing office building into a new head office for its fast-growing internet company, incorporating all technical requirements and reinforcing strong branding and a corporate identity.
The new offices are state-of-the-art in keeping with the company ethos. A strong focus on the end-user formed the basis for the design brief. Many sustainable initiatives such as rain water harvesting, solar geysers, photo-voltaic panels for +/- 50 % power usage and re-use/adaption of the existing structure have been incorporated into the redevelopment of the building.
Mature trees were incorporated into the new lush landscaping.
In addition to the exterior architectural design, KMH was appointed for the complete interior design together with the Afrihost team. Bespoke furniture complements the branding and design efficiencies across all aspects of the business – offices for the management and staff, a call centre, a client services centre, a staff gym, recreational area and a canteen.
