The Junction Courtyard
The Place – The Junction Mall, is a busy commercial shopping mall, located on the Ngong Road in Nairobi. The environment within and adjacent to the mall is very chaotic.
The Brief – In Nairobi, and in Kenya as a whole, there is very little public space within the urban environment, turning roundabouts into desirable gathering spots. The need and demand for these spaces has started to lead private entities to add public space as a competitive advantage.
We were asked to turn a large car parking space into a public urban space which allowed for multifunctional uses from events, pop up markets, children’s play areas.
