THA Architecture & Design, now U2 Design Lab, was established in Durban ten years ago by principal architect, Torbjörn Hanssen, a University of Port Elizabeth graduate and Des Baker Award winner. Focusing on the high-end residential market along the KwaZulu-Natal north coast, the practice quickly made a name for itself, and has completed 40 homes in exclusive Moreland Developments communities, including Zimbali Estate, Stratford Gardens and Ilala Ridge. By complementing its residential portfolio with a range of commercial and industrial projects, the firm has evolved into a multifaceted practice. 'As a young firm, you have to make a name for yourself,' explains Hanssen. 'However, creativity has to be balanced with an efficient operational structure. As can be seen by our Lincoln on the Lake project, the introduction of Revit has not only enabled us to take our creativity to new heights, but also accelerated design time and ensured that activities, such as the production of construction documentation, are carried out quickly and accurately.' Lincoln on the Lake is a commercial building, designed by THA for Growthpoint Properties. The R60-million building, located in the new Umhlanga town centre, features a neo-classical style. It has a strong Sullivanesque influence, which was developed in Chicago in the 1920 and 30s with the aim of enhancing the appearance of utilitarian buildings. In Umhlanga, the Sullivanesque influence is a strong counterpoint to the contemporary steel and glass of many corporate headquarters.
