Manyane Game Lodge is located in the North West Province, about 15km from Mafikeng. The Game Lodge was undergoing renovations and we were appointed in association with Reglobal Consulting to redesign the security gate-house and entrance to the lodge. The client was not satisfied with the existing gate-house and requested a prominent entrance to celebrate and announce the Game Lodge from the main road.
Two curved stone clad signage walls create a threshold to the gatehouse from the main road. We designed a new meandering the approach road and improved the landscaping to enhance the visitors experience upon arrival. Construction of the refurbished gatehouse completed in June 2015.
Our design intervention retains the core elements of the existing gate-house along with the thatch roof aesthetic common throughout the lodge. We introduced a new unified & exaggerated roof over the gatehouse along with free-form stone walls to compliment and contrast the existing face-brick structures.
