78 Corlett Drive | Johannesburg, South Africa

With a minimalist design and maximum environmental sustainability, this office building in South Africa is a true exemplar of net zero carbon! 🌿

Johannesburg is showing out with the first office development in Africa to be awarded a v1.1, 6 Star Green Star Rating as well as Net Zero Carbon accreditation 🏆. 78 Corlett Drive sets new standards for trendy co-working office spaces, incorporating minimalist geometries and with shading louvres acting as a passive shading device – as well as a slight elevation above street level to give the property a “floating effect”.

78 Corlett Drive demonstrates its cutting-edge sustainable design by featuring a wide variety of environmental features:

🚲 EV charging station, cyclist facilities, passive solar shading design and a full photovoltaic array.

📟 Sub-metering of major energy consuming systems for understanding and managing building systems and evaluating opportunities for energy savings.

🚰 Use of water efficient fittings that limit the occupant water usage to 0.52 L/day/m2, along with a robust Waste Management Plan thats minimises the quantity of waste ending in landfill.

Showing us all how it’s done!

2022… For some it may have been the year in which covid restrictions ended. The year of inflation. COP27. King Charles (and maybe also of Harry and Meghan). Heat. And cold. For us too. But for us, 2022 was also the year of exciting new developments.
