Project: Fynbos Development
Value: USD 64,185,000
Client: Lurra Capital
Construction has begun on Cape Town’s – and Africa’s – first-ever biophilic building – The Fynbos. Biophilic buildings blur the lines between nature and the built environment – incorporating elements inspired by our natural surroundings into their design to create spaces that mimic nature and help to improve the quality of life for inhabitants and users. They also embrace sustainable building practices to the highest degree, meaning reduced energy consumption and carbon emissions. Once completed, The Fynbos promises to stand as a poster child for biophilic building design and will become an icon in Cape Town’s skyline. This innovative mixed-use building will stand 24 storeys high on Upper Bree Street in Cape Town’s CBD, and will feature 689 apartments, a rooftop sunset terrace with a lap pool and co-working space, a rooftop fitness centre, as well as a ground-floor plant-based restaurant, a tearoom, and a botanical bar. Integrated PV solar panels will generate double the electricity quota needed to power the common areas, minimising fossil fuel consumption, and a central heated water system allows for economies of scale and avoids individual geysers.
