73 Juta Street in Braamfontein is home to one of the most unique spaces in Jozi. What has become a sustainable rooftop farm using sophisticated hydroponics and aquaponics systems, now doubles up as an intimate event space. The space creates an beautiful and memorable setting with awseome views of the Braamfontein and the city skyline. We have used natural elements and textures to seamlessly blend into the leafy greens surroundings. Handmade wooden planter boxes have been used to segment the space. We have created additional seating and tables using timber decking in steel frames in keeping with the urban theme.
The opportunity and necessity to grow crops on rooftops allows for an efficient use of the limited and underutilized space found in city. We feel the urge to rethink space and architecture with a more sustainable vision. Please also try to keep decor, accessories etc to a minimum.
Note: Before booking the space please take into account that guests need to climb a small vertical ladder ( see pics ) to access the space from the ground level.
Please also try to use biodegradable tableware, cups etc
I’m a third generation urban farmer from Soweto, Johannesburg. In my childhood we grew most of the food we ate at home. This reality, coupled with my passion for farming led me to pursue urban farming as a career and establish Jozi Food Farmer, a company dedicated to promoting the culture of urban farming in South Africa and around the world to increase access to fresh food and reduce carbon footprints.See Owner Profile
