Artist r1. brought his graphic style and dynamic aesthetic to 100% Design South Africa in August as the show’s first Feature Artist. As part of his creative activation, he designed the show’s identity as well as a collaborative carpet project with show curator and creative director Cathy O’Clery and leading local designers.


Workshop17 has opened a new co-working space at The Harrington in Cape Town’s East City Precinct. The redeveloped multi-tenanted retail and commercial building is set among street-side eateries and galleries in a thriving inner-city area. The Harrington features ground-floor retailers such as Bootlegger Coffee Company and East City Cycles, as well as five floors of offices. It offers change rooms, showers and bicycle storage, and there is a MyCiTi bus stop nearby. The collaborative workspace comprises 30 customisable private offices, hot-desking, dedicated workspaces, meeting areas and boardrooms, as well as a Bootlegger coffee corner, a kitchen, a lounge and breakaway spaces.


Mediclinic Stellenbosch started operating from a world-class new hospital in Brandwacht, Stellenbosch, in June. The 16000m2 facility was purpose-built for the private hospital group by property developer Atterbury and partners. The eco-friendly building features grey-water systems and water harvesting. The hospital has more than 100 beds, a 24-hour emergency centre and five theatres.


A prime commercial property in Midrand recently fetched R29.5 million on BidX1 SA’s online property auction. A local owner-occupier who runs a professional consultancy business bought it. Located in a secure estate in Waterfall, the property includes a corporate office and a warehouse with a gross lettable area of 4.464m2 and development potential for a further 1.973m2.
