Irene Link

Building C

Irene Building C is complete and fully let. Building C has its own strong identity and visual impact, adjacent to Buildings A and B, both of which are striking and individual in appearance.

Located on a highly visible corner site of the Irene precinct, it serves as the visual and conceptual gateway into the precinct. Designed to be bold and iconic, it sets the tone for the precinct’s architecture and philosophy. The building contrasts glass atop a landscaped basement podium. It appears to levitate above the landscaped podium level, and its curved corners soften the edges, giving the building a rounded and endless feel. Building C is highly divisible and efficient due to its floor plate and service core layout. Each floor plate can be divided into four tenants with ease, accommodating smaller tenanting spaces.

The building permits vast amounts of natural light. The basement maintains the ground floor relationship with the street, allowing the pedestrian and precinct to engage visually with the building.

Extensive landscaping across the site enhances the building’s streetscape. The new gatehouse design appears as a planted earth shelter. The landscaping from the Building C podium extends over the gatehouse roof, providing shade and rain shelter for all visitors and tenants. A pedestrian walkway, complete with seating and pergolas, is situated atop the planted gatehouse roof. This creates a physical link between Building C and Building D, establishing a pedestrianised precinct.

The design is energy efficient, utilising sustainable building and services technology to achieve at least a Four-Star Green rating. It considers all façade orientations, employs passive shading, uses double-glazed performance glass, and through its form and orientation, fosters a comfortable working environment.

Precinct design principles

  • Low building plinth: maintains the ground floor relationship with the street
  • Recessed ground floor glazing: the building floats above the ground floor increasing shading
  • Increased ground floor height: specifically for public areas
  • First and second storey design features: raking atrium walls and marble signage walls
  • Multiple storey atrium: creates a sense of arrival and volume as well as a view of the freeway
  • Internal feature stair in the atrium: enables engagement with atrium
  • Roof terraces: allow tenants to breathe and relax on top of the building, close to the sky and take in the incredible view
  • Landscaping: used as screening

There is no better location for a lifestyle of true convenience within the desirable living and working space of an urban village atmosphere with Botha, Alexandra and Jean avenues and the N1 forming the borders of Irene Link.

Gautrain accessibility
Accessibility is guaranteed with the Gautrain in close proximity. Conveniently the Gautrain bus route to and from the existing Gautrain station in Centurion runs past Irene Link in Jean avenue.

The envisaged second phase development of new routes for the Gautrain includes a new rail station that will be built next to Irene Link, with additional bus routes servicing the whole Irene village area.

All this makes Irene Link precinct one of the best connected new mixed-use precincts in Gauteng.
