After many months of planning, construction is starting on the Design Garage, a new space to showcase and sell products and artwork produced by students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and other institutions.

Located next to the CPUT Roeland Street campus, the Design Garage will be a flexible multi-disciplinary design space where students can gain valuable exposure as designers of distinction, revealing their talents to a wider audience of design lovers.

The Design Garage will also offer conference centre and meeting spaces ideal for events and gatherings where industry can intersect with academia. The project was conceived by a team from the Faculty of Informatics and Design at CPUT, who were spurred on by the World Design Capital designation to find a way to promote the work of new designers. It is funded by the Technology Innovation Agency, CPUT and others.

Construction work starts in early October and completion is currently scheduled for February 2016. Architectural practice Ori(gina)l has been commissioned to fit out the space.
