The original building was a facebrick clad concrete frame structure with a few old industrial-style steel windows. Carrol Boyes’ vision was to open the building to natural light and air.

She roughed out her design in black crayon on a panoramic pasted-up photograph of the building. Metal Windows detailed the removal of all brick infill panels, replacing them with expanses of charcoal colour powder-coated aluminium and glass. The remaining concrete frame was clad in custom-made aluminium panels and powder coated to match. Three elevations of the building have been completed to date. We are also contracted to service and repair the aluminium frame doors at the company’s Head Office in Rose Street Bo-Kaap.
