The suburb of Bramley, Johannesburg was founded in 1904, which makes it one of the older suburbs in Johannesburg. It has a wide range of architectural period pieces from the early coach houses (on the mail route) to 1970 architectural art pieces, like Josef Roff's house on Glen Road or Italo Lupini's ("Living machine, inspired by le Corbusier) house on Forest Road.
However, the suburb is currently experiencing a development onslaught with many properties being pulled down or altered without notice, public participation processes and respect to the heritage laws.
The Bramley community calls on the City of Joburg and the Provincial Heritage Resources Authority Gauteng (PHRAG) to enforce heritage laws and promote public participation processes.
