The architectural identity of Wolwespruit Mountain Biking Park is based on the natural and rugged terrain that the infrastructure slots into. The main structures of Wolwepsruit consist of re-used and renovated farm sheds that penetrate into the green corridor along the Wolwespruit, whilst protecting the park from the bustle and harshness of the N1 bypass. 

 

The sheds in itself lean towards a certain industrial identity complemented by contemporary, light and open spaces. Each building is placed and designed to maximize views of the koppie - reinforced by planning and material choices during the construction process. The design focuses on the main activity of mountain biking by integrating elements in various functional components in the building.
