In an urban context, architecture and landscape
architecture co-exist in the city. Interior
architecture exists as part of an architectural
envelope, and product design as an integral part of
the interior. This study explores the relationship
between these design disciplines and their
interdependence. As this book deals with interior
architecture, the influence and response to other
fields of design are considered and investigated,
setting the parameters for the design framework.
The objective is to design an information centre for
Pretoria. The tourism industry is studied to serve
as a generator for the design. The site of the Old
Fire Station Building was chosen for both its
potential and its inadequacies. The design
philosophy and approach to create a successful
public space are examined. The progression of the
design from general concept to specific end product
is illustrated. Attention is focused on parts of
the building which is developed in detail. The
study relies on the application of the concepts of
place making through layering, defining and
containing of space, and contrast existing with the
proposed intervention.
