MALL OF AFRICA
WATERFALL CITY, MIDRAND
At the heart of Waterfall is the Mall of Africa, a 116 000 square meter shopping centre. The combination of its sheer scale – it is larger than Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and will rival Sandton City in size and breadth – this landmark design is set to change the face of the Midrand area
The landscape design for the Mall of Africa takes care of all external public spaces in and around the build structure within the site boundary – it connects and integrates with the surround public landscape environment, referring to the surrounding street scapes and park.
The design aims to provide pleasant, inviting valuable and sustainable spaces for human use and enjoyment as an added experience in visiting the Mall of Africa. The design not only provides nature in an urban ecology, but it represents the indigenous Highveld Ecosystem.
The landscape consists of hard and soft landscaping in a variety of spaces.
