The Northern Cape Provincial Legislature is the law-making institution of the province and this African-inspired Provincial Legislature building is aptly situated between the city and the township of Galeshewe and is the pride of the Northern Cape. The feeling that the structure evokes is captured in the catchphrase ‘an icon of pride, a home to all.

The Northern Cape Legislature building is an architectural reflection of the Northern Cape Province and captures the spirit and aspirations of the people of the province with its unique, evocative family of forms and the interrelation of volumes and open space. As such the new building houses the members of the Provincial Legislature, the support staff of the Legislature, the Premier, and the Premier’s office staff. It has a debating chamber, a library, an open area called the ‘Patlelo’, and a Respirator Tower which is primarily an architectural landmark. The buildings faces the People’s Square, a gathering area and public space.
