Concierge Boutique Hotel & Freedom Café

36 Campbell Ave Off Lilian Ngoyi Rd, Greyville, Architecture Fabrik With Don Albert & Partners, 2011.

In an attempt to conserve their historic character, these former Victorian row houses were recycled and upgraded as hotel accommodation, while their backyards were cleared for a parking area, at the head of which a brightly coloured shipping container provides reception and restaurant facilities. This intervention is distinguished by the careful reintegration of heritage, the space generated through re-conceptualisation, and its contribution to the revival of the enclave. The Excellence Awards’ jury deemed this development an event in urban space that is worth experiencing, enjoying and re-living.
