On Saturday 27 February 2016, a sold-out crowd of VISI readers headed to The Potato Shed and WORK | SHOP | NEW | TOWN in Newtown, Johannesburg for the start of another exciting VISI Great Spaces tour.

Readers gathered in the restaurant and craft brewery, joining VISI deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes and multi-award-winning interior architect and CEO of the LIFE Group of Companies, Maira Koutsoudakis, who spearheaded the design of the establishment. Maira wowed the crowd with historical stories about the space (The Potato Shed is 104-years-old) and took readers through her design process. She stressed that everything starts with an idea, but to be successful, you have to deliver.

Guests also got to walk around the beautiful market space that is WORK | SHOP | NEW | TOWN, a retail precinct that’s packed with over 100 proudly African brands.

Readers were treated to refreshing Graham Beck bubbly, as well as delicious snacks, including mouth-watering red-bun mini burgers and green mielies in ash, before leaving with a handmade VISI goodie bag with the latest issue of VISI, a bottle of Graham Beck and a copy of the 2016 edition of SA Décor & Design.
