New Business School for NMMU

Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape


The finishing of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) Business School reflects its design intention. The exterior uses a minimalist face brick with flush jointed, tinted mortar to match the brick. The interior and courtyard are spatially more diverse, with a variety of volumes with a multitude of light sources and a range of lighter neutral colours and textures.
