Craig McCleneghan Architecture received a GIfA Award for Contemporary conservation for the restoration of the 'Rembrandt Gallery'. The client was the Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management at The University of the Witwatersrand. Below is the citation:
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.
