New Look for Hermanus High Street, SCAPE Urban & Retail, May 2022
The historical narratives and stories of Hermanus High Street as collected and written up by the Hermanus History Society have been included in the street upgrade and are highlighted through the use of laser cut corten steel inlays in the street indicating the names of families and businesses that once occupied the street. A pergola has been installed at the centre of the street space explaining the different eras High Street has seen. This old and new chapter of High Street is best enjoyed as a leisurely stroll in the street along the shops, art galleries and restaurants while reading the narrative in the pavement and ending with coffee and croissants on one of the shops.
