Velokhaya

Boamistura were kind enough to get help out writeonafrica and do some painting on our behalf,

Velokhaya is a cycling academy in Khayelitsha. Safmarine asked Marc and Lyall from Thinking to provide a few basic facilities while brightening things up. Seeing as Velokhaya is increasingly becoming a community centre, every change was made with the aim of forming a space that makes people want to spend time there. It was also important to create greater presence around the academy and in this sense Boamistura /Writeonafrica painted a brilliant Mural that also communicates the centres purpose. Other interventions include seating with storage, braais, misting systems, benches and a wall of wind mobiles scratched with wishes.
