This project forms part of the Melville Mansions Project. 255 Architects had the opportunity to design and construct our own offices in Melville, Johannesburg. On this project we truly used every opportunity to experiment with architectural details in subtle ways. We created our own flush-glazed laser-cut steel windows which we ourselves welded together. We experimented with internal paving using full size face-bricks. Being in this building for a while, we became used to being asked for directions in Melville. So we incorporated a map of Melville with X marks the spot into our front door. We ultimately had fun.
