Open House_Thursday: Hans Niehaus Gallery // 29 January 2015

OH Architecture in collaboration with Docomomo SA, presents OH_Thursdays: Hans Niehaus Gallery.

Docomomo_SA is the South African chapter of Docomomo International, an international working party for the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods of the Modern Movement. Their interest lies in the exploration of the contribution of the modern movement to the South African cultural landscape. In colonial contexts and specifically in South Africa, the emergence of the Modern Movement coincided with regimes of power and architects were challenged to design for racially designated publics. Docomomo_SA the documentation of Modern Architecture within this context. 

The Hans Niehaus Gallery and antique shop was designed by the late architect Norbert Rozendal in collaboration with owner, Hans Niehaus. The mixture of curvilinear and rectangular geometries, brick, timber, glass and concrete makes it a wonderfully curious moment in the context of the bland suburban shopping area of Claremont.  The fact that it is incomplete, and has been since its inception in 1991, doubles the curious nature of the space.
