Provincial Government Offices

Bid proposal for a new Provincial Government Offices, DRC.


The challenge of the brief was to design a new Provincial Government Office, located in the heart of Lubumbashi in the region of Katanga DRC. The new building had to be an iconic 21st century structure that integrates the physical, visual and metaphysical relationship of the cities heritage with modern materials and technology - a new vision of Lubumbashi’s future.

The design intention and site strategy sensitively connects to the existing site constraints whilst incorporating all the facilities associated with a government office including; consultation rooms, canteen services; and a 300 seater conference theatre. This project is currently unbuilt. Our bid has been submitted to the Local Authority for consideration.
