Capitec Bank has recently unveiled its innovative new headquarters situated at Techno Park in Stellenbosch named ‘iKhaya’.

Designed by dhk Architects, the three-storey curvilinear building creates a unique ‘doughnut’ shape and forms a central triple-volume atrium – an internal ‘social spine’ at the heart of the building.

 

 

Internally, the visitors are greeted by a generous triple-volume space that immediately showcases the sophistication and simplicity of the interior architecture. Wide open-plan floorplates loop around the periphery of the atrium which are connected by a series of dramatic bridges and staircases ( design element which inter-connects the various departments).

The company logo is embossed into the ceiling above reception. Other features include:

– Clerestory windows, and large roof lights for natural light.

– On each level, a total of four ‘cores’, containing centralized amenities such as kitchenettes, meeting rooms, breakout areas, lockers, bathrooms, and fire escapes, serve to augment the floorplates into departmental zones.

– A full-service kitchen and canteen area with ample seating, a small satellite café, and a grand multifunctional stadium staircase/seating area for company presentations and talks.

– Recording studio, Capitec Bank branch, and an ATM lab facility.
