Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park Border Post
The site is located on the border between South Africa and Botswana, at the entrance of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park at Twee Rivieren. The concept is based on the organic ‘muurshoop’ or anthill, both in form and planning, with a main central ‘chamber’ surrounded by an arrangement of rooms in a circular sequence, similar to the structure of the said anthill.
Large timber shading screens regulate the solar penetration and heat gain. Dry stacked rock cladding on the lower sections of the walls further insulate and protect the walls from the relentless sun.
