Khayelistsha Urban Design Framework

ACG Architects & Development Planners as Architects

An urban design framework for the CBD in Khayelitsha was completed by GAPP in 2000. The work completed by ACG architects looked at reviewing this work and incorporating a much larger footprint.


The brief was to establish parameters which would promote a vibrant integrated and sustainable environment. Key interventions have been the accommodation of higher density social housing, the consolidation of a civic hub linked to a green recreation belt traversing the site. Apart from the Urban Design input, ACG was also responsible for developing Architectural guidelines and the landscape Master Plan. This urban design framework project was completed in 2011 in Joint venture with City Think Space
