Marina Square

 

NOTABLE FEATURES / COMMENTS
Located adjacent to the High Court in Francistown, this development was conceived in order to address the shortage in advocate’s chambers, with extra amenities in the form of retail space and apartments provided. The High Court is set around a courtyard, so our response was to design a building which connects to this courtyard via a pedestrian link, with the parking component configured to allow for this foot traffic. The building faces a main route through Francistown so the elevated façade is designed as a sculptural element which screens traffic noise on the inside, while providing visual relief from the road.
