Fairbridge is situated on the corner of Old Paarl Road and Brackenfell Boulevard in Brackenfell South, Cape Town. The mall was redeveloped from a poorly performing retail only space to a mixed use offering, with Checkers Hyper as the anchor tenant on the ground floor and commercial office space for Checkers Hyper on levels 1 and 2. Our goal was to create a beautifully simple yet dynamic building form. The concept is of a white glass box sitting on top of a black glass box. The white glass box accommodates the office component while the black glass box contains the retail component. It is a slick minimalistic design that makes a dynamic statement in its context. Its design impact is the simplicity of form and concept.
