Mahwelereng Sports Node & Library

The project forms part of an existing sports node which is characterized by a sports stadium, a public recreational park and a dam in the middle. The building is placed within a public space, on the far end of the existing stadium, which would otherwise remain dormant without something roughly in the middle. The building is a strategic node within the space intended to cultivate action around the perimeter of the sports node.
