From the architect. This project was to create a new business school for the Old Mutual Investment Group.

Careful consideration of the existing campus of buildings at the head office of Old Mutual in Cape Town saw the positioning of the new training facility in an underutilised courtyard and existing ground floor office space.

The new portion of the building fits into its site and adjacent buildings much like a Tetris block as it had to connect to existing floor levels and circulation routes. We had some fun off setting a rather rigid grid (and subsequently simple box shaped building) with gentle yet defining curved walls to the training rooms and a sculptural curved concrete staircase.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Old Mutual Central Campus / Perry + Anderson Architecture" 28 Apr 2010. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/57672/old-mutual-central-campus-perry-anderson-architecture/>

sorry, but something I don't understand: this is only annex/enlargement; at first, when I saw everything (fotos) from the begining, it seems that it is a big building complex. uhhh..

well, anyway this is simple, accurate and luxurious European or American office buildings example. it sad a bit, that here nothing, that could remind South Africa.

by the way - the interior spaces could well adapt for sci-fi films scenes :-).

This building could just have well been built anywhere else in the world. Another international, clinical, shiny and lifeless box... Being from Cape Town myself, not very convinced. But I will go check it out over the weekend. I might stand up for correction.
