Everlasting Memories Of The Great Outdoors

Most of life’s greatest memories are made in the great outdoors – from romantic proposals on breath-taking viewing decks, to heartfelt “I do’s” on rustic riverside gazebos, from fun in the sun at the poolside, to après ski on the sundeck in Chamonix, from hearty family feasts on outdoor patios, to long, lonely walks along winding beachfront promenades. The great outdoors undoubtedly provides the greatest backdrop for unforgettable good times.

Plumblink Case Study

Plumblink Waterfall, Gauteng, South Africa

An established business with over 100 retail outlets across South Africa, Plumblink took the plunge allowing visionary architect Ivan Andonov of Empowered Spaces to design a contemporary building that transformed the typical geometry of a standard warehouse into a show stopping facility. Utilising traditional industrial materials such as corrugated sheeting, cladding and tinted window glazing, Andonov effectively delineated the traditional warehouse “block” by inserting massive decorative “window-boxes” with overhangs and balconies above ground level to achieve an eye-catching sculptural effect. Not only does this beautifully profile the building materials traditionally tied to Plumblink’s trade, but it also provides a functional facility for the staff and executives to enjoy and be proud of. The interior features raw exposed surfaces and materials such as polished concrete floors, portable partitions, and exposed roof, highlighting the steel rafters overhead for a chic, clean concept that serves both the warehouse, showroom, and office requirements.

Upgrades with composite building materials

5 Key Considerations For Outdoor Upgrades

Outdoor areas play a major part in creating first impressions and can serve to either attract or detract from your property’s curb appeal. By adding a beautiful outdoor facility that you can enjoy right away, you not only improve its attractiveness and utility immediately, you also increase its resale value over time.

Burger King Jean Crossing, Centurion, Gauteng

Fast food megabrand Burger King gave its Jean Crossing franchise outlet in Centurion a whopping new look with an update from its former, corrugated exterior. In the fast-paced, ever-competitive fast-food category, the site urgently needed a flaming hot new ‘’dressing’’ that would tantalize tastebuds and entice customers to come into the restaurant and not only drive-through for the standard fast-food fare. In addition, the remodel needed to conform to the international chain’s trendy new organic identity within a budget.

Tableview Shopping Centre, Cape Town, South Africa

The Tableview Shopping Centre needed a fresh and fashionable facelift to transform the well-known landmark into an appealing and convenient lifestyle centre for shoppers. Having served the community since the 1980’s, the challenge was to redesign the 6000 m2 Pick ‘n Pay megastore into an attractive, easily accessible destination that would entice shoppers to either “pop in” or “hang out’’. The renovation intended to update the flow of the facility to accommodate other anchor tenants and modernise the façade and décor in line with current lifestyle trends and
materials. In addition, it also needed to provide practical solutions for signage to better orientate customers.

Upgrades And Renovations That Add Value

Looking to improve the value of your property without breaking the bank?

There are four key factors that affect the overall value of a property: its location, its size and condition, its facilities, fixtures and finishes and lastly, the economy. While there is little you can do about your property’s location or the economy, you can address the other two factors to raise the value of your asset and ensure your Return on Investment (ROI).
