The old Turbine Hall given a new life as Anglo Gold Ashanti’s headquarters

From derelict Turbine Hall to modernized Anglo Gold Ashanti

Anglo Gold Ashanti - the old Turbine Hall

Anglo Gold Ashanti – the old Turbine Hall

The old Turbine Hall in Newtown,  previously derelict and dangerous, has undergone a remarkable succesful adaptation, to become Anglo Gold Ashanti’s headquarters. There are some spectacular architectural details inside ,with motifs from the old industrial building being picked up and repeated with an aesthetic elegance and power which is extraordinary. Accolades to Anglo Gold Ashanti for preserving in a sustainable way, this historic industrial space for Jozi. Oh that there could be more of this kind of responsible and responsive urban renewal and development in Jozi.
