WDC#455 Container Journey_2014/ 2015

 

In this post we celebrate the journey our WDC#455 container has taken through 2014 and the beginning of 2015.  We were honoured to be part of the Cape Town World Design Capital 2014 and to showcase what we do in Cecile & Boyd Foundation.

Our container was seen in numerous locations in and around Cape Town and has now found a permanent home with an organization called Greenpop in Woodstock.

We would like to thank the following institutions for letting us showcase our container on their property:  Cape Town International Airport, Root 44 – Audacious wine farm, V&A Waterfront, Greenpoint City Improvement District – Prestwich Memorial, Fan walk and OpenDesign – Cape Town City Hall.

The Cécile & Boyd Foundation is involved in creating inspiring spaces for disadvantaged children in either refurbished containers or classrooms; this is our project for World Design Capital: The Power of Colour & Texture.

Heldervalley Community Centre_Somerset-West

 

The Heldervalley Community Centre is situated on a farm on the R44 between Somerset-West and Stellenbosch.  They wanted to create a space where children from the community could come and learn computer skills as well as have a space to read and do homework.  We collaborated with them on this initiative and renovated their existing room to be an inspiring, creative space where it would encourage learning.

Life Child Safe House_Samora Michal

 

We assisted an organization called Life Child with a Safe House they have created in the community of Samora Michal.  We created a calming neutral pallette for the 3 kids bedrooms, with pops of colour to inspire creativity and creating an environment of playfullness.
