Space and financial constraints dictated the layout of this new complex north of Johannesburg This development for the Town Council of Sandton on the outskirts of Johannesburg comprises not only a new central public library but also Council chambers within the same main building and a low-rise art gallery to the south, embracing a sculpture court. The gallery has two wings modulated internally by a hierarchy of brick arches and buttresses that create top-lit pockets of space for exhibits.
