Office Developments Project

Symbion was contracted by the Provincial Office of Church of Uganda to redesign and enhance the original scheme for the Church House to suit modern times.

On completion the building will house the office of the Archbishop of Uganda, retail spaces for shops, restaurants, a bank and other commercial interests. The new innovative design comprises a screen detail to the building’s lower façade, which provokes a play of light and shade in the space. Fully cladded exterior walls are contrasted with glass curtain walls giving visibility into the different levels. Two entry points have been integrated: a Main entrance off of Kampala road and the second off of Duster Street.

Its structure rises fifteen storeys high including two basement parking levels. On the ground floor, a main lobby with a central staircase leads into the retail facilities. A smaller lift lobby with private access serves the office tower. To effectively interpret a contemporary design, the use of concealed lighting, high quality finishes such as polished granite and porcelain tiles, frame less glass partitions, textured paint and brushed stainless steel have been employed. Church of Uganda’s logo and corporate identity will also form an attribute of the design.
