Johannesburg's youngest and undoubtedly most inviting precinct, the Keyes Art Mile comes packed with serious cultural credentials. Aligned with the arts from the outset, the Mile has been designed as a curated, creative destination that effortlessly merges modern and contemporary art, leading local and international design, category-defying cuisine and an ever-evolving programme of exhibitions, events and entertainment.

The Art Mile was born from the area's highly regarded and long-established arts heritage—most notably the hundred-year old Everard Read Gallery and its contemporary Circa Gallery counterpart—with the view of extending its reach through galleries such as internationally acclaimed SMAC Gallery and cutting edge newcomer TWRW Gallery.

In fulfilling this vision, the Keyes Art Mile has assembled a considered set of tenants specialising in fine art, furniture and fashion, complemented by a spectrum of restaurant options ranging from fast food to fine dining, and housed within an iconic architectural setting.

 
 

With its ongoing improvement of, and investment in public space, the Art Mile—under guidance of StudioMAS as urban design partner and Fieldworks as landscape design consultant—has seen to the paving of roadways, widening of pavements and the planting of indigenous trees along its titular avenue, flanked by a vertical greenwall of grass and bulb species endemic to the highveld area.

ARCHITECTURAL SKETCH FOR ADJOINING ARTS VENUE

Expanding on its creatively-centered agenda, the Art Mile is set to introduce another StudioMAS-designed cultural icon to the neighbourhood in approaching months. A soon-to-be landmark structure, the as-yet unnamed development is intended to serve as a large-scale, multifaceted venue for art in all its forms, and a distinctive destination for both local and global audiences.

The architectural companion piece to this forthcoming cultural beacon, Thirty Keyes is naturally primed to partake of its creative spirit, with residents enjoying direct access to its facilities, preferential entry concessions and an intimate association with its offering.
