Open House_Thursday: Customs House // 20 August 2015

Customs House was designed by architects of the National Department of Public Works in Pretoria in the late 1960s and was built on the sea side of the highway. Its development was in violation of the intentions of the Cape Town Foreshore plan which intended to have no tall buildings built beyond the highway.  

The material use and façade modulation shows affinity to the expression of the stark bureaucratic character of the building. The domed hall with its glass facades, wooden panelling, mosaics and artwork inside is a rare space in Cape Town.

Join OHA for a lunch time tour of Customs House.

  3. Social just take clown for fun, no other requirements, a twinkling of an eye on the they forgot; not than to see a field bus and a great man, he must extraordinary Shengcaiken kneel to him.. All the rules: long-term not grinding of diamond can not have a little flaw, fad produced may wish to thin, eccentric and flamboyant.
