We have had the privilege of being approached by numerous clients to conceptualize, design and build custom event structures for different event applications. Our innovation team really enjoy thinking out of the box, and come up with different solutions based on clients’ needs and budgets.
We are extremely proud to showcase 2 on the most recent custom built event structures.
The Design Indaba is a 3 day multi-sensory & thought provoking experience. It has been voted the best Conference in the world. Our brief was to create 4 pods that would be used as a gallery space for Emerging Creatives that looked like giant industrial shipping containers. The challenge was the venue.. More specifically… the wind tunnel that happens around the Artscape.
In order to secure any temporary structure, due to the lack of building foundation, we needed to either peg into the ground or weigh down all structures. At the Artscape pegging is not possible, so we could only use concrete blocks, which are quite bulky and not very aesthetic.
In order to hide the concrete blocks we needed to build a raised floor, that way we could achieve a clean, uncomplicated look that resembled an art gallery.
This beautiful space was designed as a live billboard bar which was used as a tasting room, podcast recording space and influencer networking zone. The 1st location was as a billboard in Rosebank, Johannesburg, than it moved to Durban, and the last stop was at The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town. This structure needed to be double storey with a store room on the ground floor, the venue space on the 1st floor. It also needed to be soundproof with high-end finishes both inside and outside of the structure as well as the teak veranda in the front of the structure.
