1 Discovery Place

Project Floor Area: 147217m2
Date Certified: 6th July 2021
Address: Johannesburg, Gauteng

Discovery’s new head office is a bold architectural statement at Sandton’s highest point. The building’s form holds approximately 147 000msq and was generated from carefully sculptured interior spaces intended to foster an environment of creativity, innovation and collaboration.

The architectural concept is realized as two sunlit atria that are connected by a multistory circulation concourse – the hub, where staff and visitors enter the building and engage with it vertically and horizontally. Lifts and escalators are accessed directly from the concourse connecting the office wings. The expansive ground floor accommodates Discovery’s retail partners, client services, walk-in center, staff restaurants and coffee shops.

The various office levels are set out between the active ground floor and Discovery’s Vitality level on the roof.
