Vodacom Corporate Park
|Project Name:||Vodacom Corporate Park|
|Location:||Vodacom Campus, Midrand|
|Date:||1998 - 1999|
Corporate Park is the headquarters of Vodacom Gauteng, and consists of office space with support facilities. The central striking 30m high glass pyramid is the focal feature of the development, intended to symbolise the dynamic energy of the corporation.
Two basement parking levels and four levels of offices are arranged in a symmetrical double-C form. The office wings spring from the central pyramidal atrium and end in shaded private piazzas where the activities of the various departments are visible though the expansive clear glass facades. The office elevations facing the freeway are clad in natural green slate contrasting with the sleek glass and steel of the private courtyard facades. Generous natural light and abundant vistas create an ambience that set the standard for office accommodation in the rest of the development. The semi-circular reflective entrance pond and opulent landscaping around the building creates vast green areas linked through the whole complex. At night the building is an enchanting display of light against the night sky.
