The Norval Foundation, Cape Town
Article in the latest Architect and Builder Magazine, featuring a project of ours that opened to the public on 28 April 2018.
Envisioned as a modern pavilion for art, the Norval Foundation overlooks an indigenous landscaped garden that integrates a rehabilitated wetland, sculpture park, amphitheater and picnic site with incredible lighting and high level building energy management system.

An office conversion into residential apartments meets the growing demand for accommodation in the CBD.
dhk architects has unveiled proposals for an elegant new office development, 35 Lower Long, situated in Cape Town’s growing Foreshore precinct.
Designed for land owner Ellerine Brothers and developers Abland, the new tower replaces a lower building designed in the late eighties.
As one of the first of a cluster of taller buildings envisaged in a presently underdeveloped area that is rapidly emerging as Cape Town’s financial centre, the design of the building not only provides world class office space but aims to invigorate this part of the city, both on street level and within the greater city scape.
The sculptural building is characterised by dynamic glazed facades which extend seamlessly over the office and parking levels. New retail spaces animate the entire length of the street frontage, which sits on a busy pedestrian route across the city, breathing new life into the area. The wing-like glazing on the street-facing facades soars upwards past the chamfered corners of the building, creating a dynamic addition to the street and skyline.
The building will provide 13,470m˛ of premium office space and 334m 2 of retail, and will be completed early 2020.
After the Converge Superhero Team spent the day at the Maitland Cottage Hospital on Mandela day this year, we returned for further work on the finer details. This is an update on the waiting room mural - phase 1 in progress.....
This development was recently featured in the August 2017 edition of Visi Magazine.

We are thrilled to have this project featured in the latest Architect and Builder magazine.
The Converge Superhero Team spent the day at the Maitland Cottage Hospital, one of only two Paediatric Orthopaedic Hospitals in the Southern Hemisphere, repainting the waiting room, varnishing furniture, and most importantly spending time with the kids!

Converge Consulting spreading a little Christmas cheer to those less fortunate.
We as a company have a long-standing relationship with Ncedolwethu Edu-care Center and delivered 42 Santa Shoe Boxes for the children that the staff put together.
We had an incredibly humbling morning watching the children open their gifts. After much excitement, the children sang a few songs and Lizo said a few words.
We were extremely honored and privileged to have been able to spend the morning with these beautiful children.
Ncedolwethu Edu-care Center was established in 1994 by Florence
Dodovu and is located in Mfuleni (near Blue Downs) in the Western Cape, South
Africa. Florence currently has 9 children living with her that have been
She also runs an Edu-care Center for approximately 35 children from the neighbourhood (from 7 am to 5 pm from Mondays to Fridays). Many of the children rely on the Center for their only meal of the day.
In addition, at least 15 additional older children who are at primary school in the morning attend the Center in the afternoons, again many of whom rely on the Center for their only daily meal. http://www.ncedolwethu.org/
Our recent charity drive, together with valued and generous clients, was for Hatch.
Hatch is a non-profit organisation that organised
starter kits for new moms from underprivileged areas, giving them and their
babies some of the essentials for those first few weeks that most people take
Each hatch bag contains a blanket, baby grow,
vests, hat, socks, nappies, cotton wool, wipes, baby soap, aqueous cream, a
soft toy, and sanitary pads for mom. Hopefully hatch can make it a little easier for
mom and baby.
For more information on this incredible initiative, or to make a donation, please contact them on email@example.com or visit their website www.hatch.org.za

It was a great day out with loads of laughter and a great team spirit.
