This Project is located in a newly established Nature Conservation area in Broadlands just inland from the sea between Gordon’s Bay and Strand, Cape Town.

The purpose is to introduce an environmental centre to provide information facilities to locals and visitors as well as a small office space for the reserve management. In addition a NGO specialising in indigenous nurseries is to establish themselves here to develop a nursery that can train and inform the local community whist providing a sustainable business venture that propagates indigenous species. The environmental centre is designed to accommodate training classes and other community oriented events, and encompass environmentally conscious building strategies, passive design principles and technologies such as a waterless toilet system.

Construction is to use as much local labour as possible as part of the Nations Expanded Public Works Program.
