Abstract

Set in the historic centre of Pretoria CBD, this study draws extensively on its context to formulate an appropriate response to bringing about urban regeneration in this section of the city. The study was initiated with the selection of a small site set in the percieved northern portion of the inner city. By challenging both the alleged threshold between the 'north' and the 'inner city' and the city council's proposal for the surrounding sites, the proposed building attempts to create meaningful space while enriching the visitor's experience of his immediate surroundings.
