Radisson RED Rosebank is located in the new mixed-use Oxford Parks precinct on a prominent corner of one of Johannesburg’s most stylish urbanising locations. The 222-room hotel was designed to meet a client brief of being a substantial building that was architecturally sophisticated yet functional and would enhance the area’s appeal. Construction of South Africa’s second Radisson RED was completed in August 2021, using materials that were specified to be low in maintenance requirements but architecturally relevant to the hotel’s discerning guests and travellers.
Humans have used wood to make tools, weapons, structures and homes for thousands of years. Timber’s versatility, strength and enduring aesthetic attraction have meant that even as technologies in other aspects of our lives have improved in leaps and bounds, we still love our social and living spaces to have a natural look.
February is designated as the month of love. Recognising that many people also love their homes and the beautiful products that enhance their lives, building materials group Eva-Last would like to celebrate the creation of the building blocks of comfort, joy and happiness in our living and work environments.
