The Groenkloof Nature Reserve to the immediate south of the city is potentially an environmental treasure on Pretoria’s doorstep. Apart from the indigenous flora and fauna and rich history of the reserve, there are existing but poorly-used facilities for recreation, education and adventure sports. At present the huge potential of this area is by no means fully realised. This ambitious design project aims to change this by creating an Interactive Centre in the reserve. Its objective is to design an exciting blueprint for enhancing existing facilities and introducing new ones. The focus of this bold, holistic approach is one of blending, and at times juxtaposing, elements of design in order to harmonise the interior and exterior architecture with the natural landscape.
