Current  In early 2013 the Department of Justice tabled an extended brief for the Magistrate Offices planned for  Plettenberg Bay.  At this point a. scheme has already been approved for construction by the local council.  b2 decided to propose a complete departure from both a planning and aesthetic point of view as the original design was already 5 years old.  The amount of courts now required almost doubled.   The increase in accommodation forced a spatial and planning re-think culminating in an about turn on various early decisions.  Together with the revised planning b2 proposed a major departure from the original aesthetic.  The new elevations are a reinterpretation of the fissured rock formations found on the local beaches.
