Grand Namibia, a well established firm of accountants and auditors approached PMA with the intent of refurbishing their company profile.

Located in Windhoek West the building finds itself in a relatively older residential extension of the city. During the initial design development, PMA took the approach of remaining sensitive in relation to the street language and patterns. The building was rotated to a north facing façade for greater sun control, whilst embracing the view of the CBD. This design gesture breaks away from the existing repetition within the street typology to emphasize the new intervention in this street context.

An H-shape was proposed to maximize natural light and ventilation throughout the structure, with a central entrance and main circulation corridor. Passing the sound of water cascading, you enter a play with volumetric spaces and tactile treatment within the entrance foyer. An architectural language intertwined throughout the building’s interior.
