Robben Island World War 2 Sites

Robben Island

We were appointed by the National Department of Public Works to develop a landscape master plan for an enhanced visitor experience of the World War 2 relic sites – including gun emplacements, workshop, power station, bunkers, radar facility and lighthouse. The plans incorporate recreational facilities, transport routes, signage master-planning, rehabilitation planning and ecological trail development. 5km of walking trails were designed to connect the individual military sites through a sequence of experiences with resting places and interpretive signage; guiding the way and infusing the past with contemporary relevance to engender shared heritage appreciation.
