Tyger Valley Shopping Centre, Contextual Framework Bellville,

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

CLIENT: Hermanus and Roman

The project sets out a vision, contextual framework and development principles to guide future development within the Tyger Valley Shopping Centre area. Work included the preparation of a development-intent statement, contextual analysis and contextual framework for the Tyger Valley Shopping Centre. The situation necessitated a public meeting of relevant stakeholders to formulate a vision and a set of development principles for the Tyger Valley precinct as a whole, which was followed by a design charette of interested professionals to come up with a concept for the valley. After this, the team focused on the shopping centre itself and prepared contextual analyses and contextual framework drawings for the primary precinct.
