GREAT DESIGN AND
QUALITY WORKMASHIP.

Prefabrication is a modern construction process that is growing in popularity. This method of construction is great for
consistency & quality control. Factory tools used in prefabrication offer additional quality assurance compared to repeated
construction on-site. Sub-assemblies in prefabricated construction are produced in a controlled manufacturing environment
and follow specified standards, therefore built to a uniform quality.

NEW SHOPPING MALL
FOR TYNWALD

ISSUE 37 13

main profile

K Zimbabwe recently opened their brand new store on the
5th November, 2020, at the Tynwald Mall, Sanganai Corner,
along Kirkman Road. The supermarket is very busy and has
proven to be extremely popular with residents in Tynwald, Kuwadzana
and the surrounding suburbs. Previously residents were forced to travel
long distances for the convenience of all-in-one supermarket shopping.
Construction of the mall started towards the end of 2019 and was
it expected to be completed in mid-2020 – but like most large scale
construction projects the Covid pandemic seriously affected timetables,
schedules, and of course budgets. The project was not without its own
FKDOOHQJHV 7KH VLWH VORSHV VLJQLÀFDQWO\ IURP HDVW WR ZHVW QHFHVVLWDWLQJ
some ground work and the construction of a retaining wall on the east
side, separating the mall from the neighbouring – rather dilapidated –
structures. Negotiations are at a sensitive stage intended to integrate
the neighbours into the overall landscaping and design plan.
Attention had to be paid to storm water drainage for the run off from the
parking area and the sizeable roof structure. This entailed constructing
a rain water drainage system – with a grid covered channel across the
entrance to the parking area – leading the water into the civil drainage
system and eventually to Lake Chivero. In addition almost 2 kilometres of
sewer line had to be constructed to connect the mall to the council sewer
line which ultimately ends up at the Crowborough treatment plant. Chisipo
consulting was superintending all the engineering works on this project.
The designers of the mall created a series of generic ‘white box’ spaces
which tenants are then able – with assistance from the developers – to
tailor make to suit their requirements. The developers have provided
electricity from a dedicated ZESA transformer, a back-up generator,
as well as provisions for a solar power system. Tenants have their own
individual ZESA metres to make payment and contribution calculations
simple and transparent. The council water supply is sporadic and
unreliable so there’s an on-site borehole as well as water tanks which
can store substantial amounts of water for the tenants. Food courts

completed, within a few months.
This section of Tynwald had previously been relatively neglected and under
developed so the mall will bring new vigour and vibrancy to the suburb, as
well as helping to create a number of employment opportunities for local
residents. It’s part of a bigger urban planning scheme to upgrade the area
that could include adjacent housing developments, as well as encouraging
factories and warehouses to consider Tynwald as a more desirable and
economically viable destination.
While Tynwald has traditionally been a predominantly residential area
an employment corridor along Kirkman Road is being established and is
expanding rapidly. The overriding concept behind the new development
is that people will be able to live, work and shop within a mixed use peri-
urban environment where all the facilities and amenities that they need
are within easy travelling distance. The development of Tynwald and the

then developed and funded by a forward looking consortium of private
investors, is set to change and improve the lifestyle of the currently less
privileged communities on the western side of the City.

plaster which tenants can choose to paint in corporate colours and
there’s ample provision above the shop fronts for logos or illuminated
signage to add colour and interest and draw in prospective shoppers.
Vertical gardens and a green portico will provide shade and shelter
for customers who choose to eat outside the food court on the
pavement promenade and also soften the boxy concrete and glass
facade. There’s a high roof above the entrance to the supermarket,
partly to provide shelter for shoppers from sun and rain, but also to
add architectural emphasis (and visual appeal) to the main access.
The entrance opening has an unusually wide span – around 9 metres
across – which helps to encourage shoppers to cross the threshold
into the retail space. There’s also a generous amount of secure
and convenient paved parking space in front and to the side of the
structure for the convenience of the customers – none of the hassle

residential profile

hen the current owners bought the house at the beginning
of 2020 it was basically a fairly sound structure of brick
under concrete tiles, in the style of a Tuscan villa with
rough exterior plaster and a series of stepped parapet
walls supporting the roof. The roof tiles were originally a reddish
terracotta colour and the exterior had been painted in a fairly bright ochre
yellow with brown window frames. The exterior of the house has now been
repainted in a softer, creamier sandy colour with smart white trims, white
window frames with white architraves and a slate grey roof. The overall
effect is cooler, crisper and much more modern.
The garden was lush and tropical but somewhat overgrown and in
need of some attention – mostly clearing away unchecked growth and
opening up the views of the space. The garden slopes down to what
was once a small perennial stream running through the property to the
vlei outside the boundary. As a result of changing weather patterns,
and building development in the surrounding suburb, the stream has
mostly dried up, but the new owners have plans to restore it, although

side open up to an upstairs balcony
overlooking the pool and garden. Behind
the bed a pony wall – clad in diagonal
timber strips – demarcates a generous
walk in closet. Beyond the dressing
room is a luxurious, spa like bathroom
with a tub and a huge glassed in shower

800mm give the bathroom an elegant and
sophisticated appeal.

solar set up for power. Hot water is
supplied by solar pressure geysers and
the whole house is run off a 20kVA Victron
inverter with 6 lithium ion batteries and 24
solar panels.

The interior structural design was a
collaboration between Abed Khalatbari
and Mirko Tucakov. Structure and Design
has featured a number of their previous
collaborations including Sandalwood Lodge
(issue 25) and Café Nush at Village Walk
(issue 12). Tucakov works as the consulting
architect providing inspiration, advice and
technical drawings while Khalatbari tends to
have the overall vision and also functions as
the project manager and interior designer.

Khalatbari and Tucakov have once again
proved that vision, collaboration and
dedication can create beautiful, functional,
modern spaces that don’t need to entail a
huge budget.

Abed Khalatbari

was born in the city of Isfahan in Iran and moved with his family to Zimbabwe at the
DJH RI $IWHU ÀQLVKLQJ VFKRRO KH VWXGLHG &LYLO (QJLQHHULQJ DW WKH 8QLYHUVLW\ RI &DSH
Town from 2005 to 2010. While successfully completing a home renovation project in
Cape Town he discovered his true passion – construction, and creating and designing
interior spaces. As a result he continued his studies completing courses in Construction
Management and Property Development and Investment at the faculty of Engineering
and the Built Environment.

Khalatbari’s vision is to renovate and modernise older unusual and interesting properties
around Zimbabwe, in both the residential and commercial sectors, bringing them up to
date and infusing them with new style and sophistication. In order to achieve this, he is
building a highly skilled and creative team to help realise his ideas.

He has successfully completed design and renovation projects at the various Café Nush
outlets at Avondale, Village walk and at Café Nush Organiks. He also headed up the
renovations and extensions at Sandalwood Lodge as well as Avecina Clinic and DigiPost in
Borrowdale. The Tuscan Villa renovation is his latest project.

The property consisted of a modest three-bedroom family home –
solidly built of brick under tile, probably constructed in the 40s or 50s,
set on around three quarters of an acre, in a quiet residential area. In
addition, there was an existing two-bedroom cottage, some outbuildings,
a swimming pool and an entertainment area. The garden could provide
ample parking space for both staff and clients and the peace and quiet
would help to create a conducive working environment. The suburbs

46 STRUCTURE & DESIGN

The old cottage has been transformed in to
a three-bedroomed accommodation option,
with luxurious spa-like bedrooms each with
en suite bathrooms. Mangoma has designed
sliding solid wood barn-like doors between the
bedrooms and bathrooms, which are a good
space-saving option. The exposed rails on the
doors add a touch of a minimalist industrial
chic. The bathrooms were designed by P4D to
be simple and modern, with glassed in-shower
cubicles and large shower rosettes, a free-
standing tub, surface mounted basin and
metro-style wall tiles. The bedrooms are also
uncluttered, elegant and spacious – the neutral
colours and minimalist décor create a soothing
and restful environment.

There’s an open plan kitchen, dining and
lounge area overlooking the existing pool
and the entertainment gazebo. The kitchen
contains up-to-date appliances, including both
gas and induction hobs, and a washer and
drier. The open plan space includes a small
dining area and a lounge area decorated with
Italian leather furniture. Most of the furniture
– including the soft furnishings, curtains
and blinds – was selected by Mangoma,
with some input from the client regarding
personal preferences. The result is elegant,
sophisticated and comfortable homey spaces.

commercial profile

The main access to the residential section is
through a centre pivot solid meranti door into
a small foyer. The foyer also has access to
the double-garage as well as the hi-tech solar
and inverter system, which allows the whole
property to run ‘off grid’.

The existing thatched gazebo by the pool has
been updated by Mangoma with the addition of
bi-fold doors to open up the space and a new
bar counter with shelves behind. Bar stools,
lounge furniture and outdoor furniture create a
relaxed entertainment space. Originally, there
was a pool table in the gazebo and Mangoma
has re-used the pool table lights, augmented
with similar lights over the bar, to create a
relaxed, fun ambiance. As the business is very
much based on client relationships, the pool
gazebo is ideal for entertaining and winning
over clients.

There are two additional rooms next to the pool,
which are currently used as storerooms but
could be converted to additional bedrooms in
the future. There’s also accommodation for a
live-in groundsman/caretaker.
