Civic Architecture

Co-Arc is acutely aware that meaningful architecture shapes the civic realm and sets the stage for human interaction. The firm grasps any opportunity for the design of civic facilities coming its way, from space planning to master planning, and has developed considerable expertise in the field. We pride ourselves on an admirable track record of completed civic buildings, many of which have earned recognition through awards and publication, including awards bestowed on the 80 000m2 Mpumalanga Legislature and Government Complex and the Ekurhuleni Council Chamber . Completed projects include art galleries, libraries, auditoria and government buildings, but also many spaces and places for human interaction, such as precinct designs, public squares or streetscapes, all approached from their specific social, cultural and environmental context.
