I-beam formed from Decolite

The Eastgate 20 development on the corner of Katherine Street and Grayston Drive in Sandton, was completed in 2012. Paragon architects considered the position of the property in creating the AAA offices which are now home to PPC Johannesburg.

As an integral part of the functionality of the office space, the designers considered the parking for not only vehicles, but for bicycles too.

Simulated I-beam in Decolite offers form and function

Due to the fact that the bike shed required some form of roof structure, the architects decided to make use of  Decolite as a material. The vertical steel posts provided the basic structure which allowed for the design and support of a light weight non structural element. The horizontal I beam, manufactured, from high density  EPS  and coated with our hard wearing external material, formed a frame to the external ceiling while allowing a roof type element to the bus shelter.
