Shoppers delight

Its elegant design and distinctive architectural focus sets the stage for one of SA’s most exceptional shopping experiences.

Nicolway Bryanston is being developed by The Rodrigues Group together with development managers Flanagan & Gerard Property Development and Investment who are also responsible for the leasing of Nicolway Bryanston.

The attentive design of Nicolway Bryanston by the centre’s development team and MDS Architecture has inspired a modern innovative structure, which incorporates the latest in retail and architectural principles, as well as the application of environmentally responsible practices.

“Light, space and energy flows all interplay in the design of Nicolway Bryanston to create a fresh, stylish shopping experience” says Nicolway Bryanston owner Martin Rodrigues of The Rodrigues.

Harnessing South Africa’s natural resources, natural light is used to maximum effect at Nicolway Bryanston. A four-metre-wide glass strip which runs 90 meters in length connects it to the outdoors, admitting refreshing amounts of natural light.

“In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the use of natural light is environmentally progressive and cost-effective for the ongoing operation of the mall,” notes Patrick Flanagan of Flanangan & Gerard.

Spread over two levels, the centre is designed so the lower level will also enjoy abundant natural light through five cleverly positioned voids, which link the levels by fashioning airy double-volume atriums that channel natural light throughout the entire mall.

The atriums also create a discernible connection between the two levels, allowing shoppers to position themselves in the mall easily while also maximising brand value of the retailers between both levels. Generous parking is also available to shoppers on both levels.

A focal point of the centre’s interior is the stand-out home-decor zone in the heart of the lower-level. It has been designed so that shoppers instinctively know they are entering a unique, stylish shopping node within Nicolway Bryanston.


Transition into this area is marked by a subtle variation of architectural language and a distinction in the colour of finishes. Creating a spectacular showcase, the home-decor zone features towering four-metre-high shop fronts with signage set behind glass.

“Nicolway Bryanston has a distinct appearance which combines style and functionality at the most effective and elegant level,” says Nick Poulsen of MDS Architecture.

The chic 23,000sqm Nicolway Bryanston, with excellent visibility and access from William Nicol Drive, has been designed to maximise its superb situation and create an upmarket, trend-setting experience for the affluent shoppers in the area.

It will feature some 90 shops with a unique tenant mix creating one of South Africa’s most compelling food convenience offerings with an exceptional leading national food retailer line-up including a 3,200sqm new Woolworths concept store, a 3,600sqm Checkers and a 2,500sqm Food Lovers Market.
