The Client

A diversified financial services group and the largest insurance company in Africa, this particular project was their Alice Lane flagship offices in the heart of Sandton.

The Brief

With the initial interior design of this brand-new building already undertaken, and the client successfully moved in, Conduit Interior was brought on board to add heart and soul to the common areas and selected client-facing areas of the building.

Conduit Interior undertook an extensive on-site study which resulted in an approved proposal to move the location of key areas around. This involved moving the waiting area out of a semi-concealed lounge and into the main atrium.

The success of the project was the transformation of Sanlam’s existing reception from an empty and transient space into a warm and welcoming town hall that embodies Sanlam’s warmth and hospitality.

The executive area was enhanced through several design additions including a customised time zone installation in the main boardroom. A laser-cut screen conceals the roof space from the lift lobby, allowing light into the space and casting kinetic shadows on the floor as the sun moves around the building.
