Africa Architecture Awards: “NMCH is not only a pioneering children’s hospital within Johannesburg, but expands the role and expectations of what should be expected from a paediatric facility”
Orlando was commissioned by Absa to curate and develop a customer experience that would engage younger customers and strategically re-energise the approach to customer experience in Absa’s branch network. Absa Experience combines the best in physical design, audience engagement programmes, event activations and showcases to spark new forms of interaction.
