Thesis dissertation: Muizenberg seafront
                                      Project Description:
                                      Problem statement: Over the last few decades due to economic, environmental, planning and
                                      management issues the coastal town of Muizenberg which was once a thriving holiday and
                                      tourist destination has suffered greatly from urban decay and a poor environmental quality.
                                      These factors have led to the erosion of “sense of place” and the uniqueness of place that
                                      made Muizenberg a world renowned coastal town and tourist destination.
                                      Hypothesis: My thesis argues that through a number of strategic interventions, when designing
                                      the landscape by responding to social, cultural, environmental and aesthetic layers the identity
                                      of Muizenberg will be restored and enhanced

                         Description:
Construction detailing   The design philosophy for construction detailing in this project was to respond to the harsh environmental
                         conditions of the site, which included strong SE winds and salt spray. This made conditions uncomfortable
                         for users. Therefore the design approach was the creation of raised berm structures that function as dune
                         barriers providing for a sheltered and more comfortable micro-climate for users.
                         The site also required the use of robust materials that could withstand the harsh environmental conditions,
                         as well as heavy public use. Railway sleepers have been used as retainer wall cladding to celebrate the
                         historical railway connection to the site.




                                                                                                                                       EDUCATIONAL WORK

                         Description:
Construction detailing   The design approach for construction detailing was to reveal the natural
                         processes of the site by day-lighting underground mountain streams and
                         using local sandstone material as robust seating.
                         The colourful iconic Victorian bathing huts have long been associated with
                         Muizenberg beachfront. The design approach was to re-interpret the
                         bathing hut to provide for a more flexible structure that could
                         accommodate a kiosk or crafts vendor, as well as providing a sheltered and
                         shaded environment.

Cape Town International Airport (commercial)
Client: Airports Company South Africa (ACSA)
Project Description:
Clients brief:
The Cape Town International Airport is one of the busiest airports on the continent and with FIFA World Cup in 2010 the CTICC
required indigenous landscaping that would showcase to visitors of the world the Western Cape’s richly diverse floral kingdom
of plant species.
The site and its environment:
-The site includes areas to be landscaped along all recently constructed approach roads to and from the airport terminals on
the land side of the airport as well as planting around the IRT bus terminal and open plaza space outside the main terminal
building.




                                                                                                                                  PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
The site is situated in a harsh environment on the “Cape Flats” which is exposed to strong winds throughout the year as well as
poor soils which have been contaminated by fuel spills in recent years. Due to the height and structure of buildings some
landscaped areas will be greatly affected by low temperatures and sunlight in the winter months.



My involvement in the project:
-Initial concept planning and plant selection as well as CAD planting plans.
-On site supervision of landform construction and site and tree planting supervision.
-Project manage, formulating budget estimates, site inspections.

  • 4. 2 Barcelona Informal Settlement SDF Focus groups Site analysis Formalised community courtyard spaces EDUCATIONAL WORK Cultural mapping Project Description: The Barcelona Informal Settlement project engaged Town Planning students and Landscape Architecture students at UCT to work with an impoverished community in an informal settlement in Cape Town, which is situated on a old landfill site. The aim of the project was for students to work with the community together with international NGO’s Slum Dwellers International (SDI) and help develop a spatial development framework which could be taken forward to the City of Cape town. Precinct zones of strategic The project involved students conducting focus group sessions with the local community as well as intervention analysing the site by using cultural mapping as well as terrain analysis techniques. Spatial Development The final product of my spatial development framework took the approach of addressing the Framework Plan immediate issues surrounding the community by proposing strategic planning development interventions that would provide the catalyst to activate social and economic growth. This approach drew on the principle of accommodating informality by means of providing the necessary formalized infrastructure and development in which to improve the settlements overall performance. Development of public amenity infrastructure
  • 5. 2 Thesis dissertation: Muizenberg seafront Project Description: Problem statement: Over the last few decades due to economic, environmental, planning and management issues the coastal town of Muizenberg which was once a thriving holiday and tourist destination has suffered greatly from urban decay and a poor environmental quality. These factors have led to the erosion of “sense of place” and the uniqueness of place that made Muizenberg a world renowned coastal town and tourist destination. Hypothesis: My thesis argues that through a number of strategic interventions, when designing the landscape by responding to social, cultural, environmental and aesthetic layers the identity of Muizenberg will be restored and enhanced EDUCATIONAL WORK
  • 6. 2 Thesis dissertation: Muizenberg seafront EDUCATIONAL WORK
  • 7. 2 Description: Construction detailing The design philosophy for construction detailing in this project was to respond to the harsh environmental conditions of the site, which included strong SE winds and salt spray. This made conditions uncomfortable for users. Therefore the design approach was the creation of raised berm structures that function as dune barriers providing for a sheltered and more comfortable micro-climate for users. The site also required the use of robust materials that could withstand the harsh environmental conditions, as well as heavy public use. Railway sleepers have been used as retainer wall cladding to celebrate the historical railway connection to the site. EDUCATIONAL WORK
  • 8. 2 Description: Construction detailing The design approach for construction detailing was to reveal the natural processes of the site by day-lighting underground mountain streams and using local sandstone material as robust seating. The colourful iconic Victorian bathing huts have long been associated with Muizenberg beachfront. The design approach was to re-interpret the bathing hut to provide for a more flexible structure that could accommodate a kiosk or crafts vendor, as well as providing a sheltered and shaded environment. EDUCATIONAL WORK
  • 9. 3 Cape Town International Airport (commercial) Client: Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) Project Description: Clients brief: The Cape Town International Airport is one of the busiest airports on the continent and with FIFA World Cup in 2010 the CTICC required indigenous landscaping that would showcase to visitors of the world the Western Cape’s richly diverse floral kingdom of plant species. The site and its environment: -The site includes areas to be landscaped along all recently constructed approach roads to and from the airport terminals on the land side of the airport as well as planting around the IRT bus terminal and open plaza space outside the main terminal building. PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE The site is situated in a harsh environment on the “Cape Flats” which is exposed to strong winds throughout the year as well as poor soils which have been contaminated by fuel spills in recent years. Due to the height and structure of buildings some landscaped areas will be greatly affected by low temperatures and sunlight in the winter months. My involvement in the project: -Initial concept planning and plant selection as well as CAD planting plans. -On site supervision of landform construction and site and tree planting supervision. -Project manage, formulating budget estimates, site inspections.
