Making a bold statement, yet blending into the surrounding suburb of Melville, 27Boxes is a realisation of edgy design and practical implementation. A radical departure from the shopping malls of our generation, yet not a return to the high streets of our youth. 27Boxes showcases the best of a shopping centre set in a garden, surrounded by the boheminian suburb that is Melville.
27Boxes is built entirely from shipping containers, the first of its kind in South Africa. The design combines shipping containers, garden plants and rolling lawns, together with other brick and concrete elements for a richly different look and feel. 27Boxes is pioneering in concept and design, and profiles Johannesburg at the forefront of international design and bold ideas.
