New Tourist Information Centre and Accommodation, Kammiesberg, Northern Cape
Project involvement: 2008: assisted Senior Architect with design development and drawings. The Information Centre is the second of two intended projects for Kammiesberg, the first one being the renovation of a farm on the outskirts of the town to cater for visitors’ accommodation – presently under construction. Buildings are made of mud-bricks, relating to an economy of means and material availability on site, amongst others. Read more about the farm renovation project  here. [Image source: Jakupa].
