  • Contemporary conservation: The restoration of the 'Rembrandt Gallery'. For the Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management at The University of the Witwatersrand. Craig McCleneghan Architecture
  • Location: University of the Witwatersrand, West Campus
  • A notable example of the value of a process of the careful unclogging and uncluttering of an overlooked, forgotten and neglected piece of uniquely eccentric campus architecture. The architect’s approach has resulted in a respectful and generous restoration – with well-considered contemporary interventions and insertions – offering the university a refreshingly functional resource centre which doesn’t compromise the original structure.
