The aim of the design is to adapt a historic industrial structure and create a building that houses a production process, that is socially and historically responsive. A new structure will subtly connect with the old and accentuate the architectural heritage. By converting an old Boiler House into a furniture factory, the architecture strives to enable a physical and visual link between production and daily life. The urban fabric and showroom visually connects with the furniture makers, in order to inform the public on the production process. This will create a integrated socially responsive environment, where people can live, work and play.

AFRIKAANS : Die doel van die ontwerp, is om 'n industriŽle erfenis gebou te hergebruik en aan te pas om so doende 'n nuwe gebou te skep wat 'n produksie proses huisves. 'n Nuwe struktuur sal sosiaal en histories reageer en subtiel met die ou struktuur gebind word. Die nuwe verbinding sal so geskiet dat die klem ter alle tye gelÍ word op die historiese kwaliteit van die omgewing. Die argitektuur strewe om 'n fisiese konneksie tussen produksie en allerdaagse lewe te vorm, gevolglik sal die argitektuur 'n omgewing skep waar mense kan woon, werk en ontspan. Die studie poog om 'n argitektuur te skep wat sosiaal reageer tot die omgewing.
