Irene Village Mall was conceptualised as a village street retail scheme with a distinct character and nature to complement the existing Irene vernacular and indeed become the ‘village centre’ of the area. The main entrance fronts onto the existing Irene Farm village single storey residential area, thus the contrast with the solid built mass which fronts onto the freeway - for functional visual and acoustic reasons. The architecture reflects the rich history of Irene, reminiscent of the old Transvaal architecture, which further underwrites and emphasizes the farm atmosphere.
