Frankenfeld and King Architects received a joint appointment with Ngonyama Okoanum Associates Architects Pty Ltd, for Rygersal Apartments Renovations and Additions, from the Department of Public Works; Prestige Projects. The brief was to remodel the existing 1970’s style apartment block into a modern block, with two and three bedroom units suitable for government DG occupation.

Clean lines and contemporary finishes have been used throughout to achieve this, while the Marmoran finish to the plastered facades and the cladding in aluminium faced panels ensure low maintenance in the future.

The design takes into account current passive and active green design philosophies by utilizing screening devices to the windows along with specialized e-glass glazing, recycled materials, heat pumps for the hot water supply, LED light fittings with movement light sensors, and re-cycled water from the basement sump to irrigate the plants. Waterwise and appropriate planting to the drought prone Cape Town climate have also been incorporated into the landscape design.
