Orlando East Station Spatial Guidelines
Orlando East, Soweto
City of Johannesburg
In collaboration with 26'10 south Architects
In response to the rampant developmental projects around the bustling Orlando Station interchange, an interim set of design guidelines sought to provide a point of reference for various project initiatives. Quick-win solutions such as multi-purpose parking spaces were created along civic amenities. Formal and informal retail activity is given equal opportunity for growth whilst ‘front-doors’ of civic buildings are emphasized through the making of adjacent public spaces and emphasis of the station forecourt.
