Tshwane House

Brief

State of the art municipal headquarters

 

When a part of the historic Munitoria building was destroyed by fire in March 1997, the result was that the building’s staff were scattered in other buildings in the inner city.

 

The remaining building was deemed to be inadequate for the future needs of the municipality and so the decision was made to demolish it to make way for a new state of the art municipal headquarters to provide greater ease of access to services for Tshwane citizens and instil a culture of increased organizational efficiency.

 

In April 2015, the City of Tshwane signed a public-private partnership contract for the construction of its new headquarters with the Tsela Tshweu consortium of which Head Interiors formed part.

 

Head interiors was responsible for the space planning, design and specifications of interior architecture, furniture and fittings in the four main executive offices, caucus areas and meetings rooms, and the council chamber.
