303-313 Anton Lembede St., Norman Eaton, 1961-65.

This cube-like building, deemed “one of the most charming modern buildings of the world” by the renowned South African-born, late British architect-planner, Lord Holford, is the only one in Durban by Norman Eaton. It is distinguished by the travertine podium to the pavement, water fountains and vegetation, its diminutive scale, the suspended filigree screen shielding the interior from the inclement effects of the sun, and a roof garden (which is currently deserted).
