ONE difference between South Africa and Germany

There are many differences between South Africa & Germany – THANKS the Lord, most of them are positive for SA!
As far as the correlation between population and land mass is concerned the difference is enormous! About 82 million people are living on 357 000 square km in Germany
whereas “only” 51million South Africans occupy nearly 4 times the size of Germany — we – YES in my heart I’m a South African! – live on 1.2 million square km.

That’s the reason why Germany is forced to use and utilize vertical S-P-A-C-E in the most efficient ways.

One positive aspect of the economic downturn is that South African business owners are becoming more and more aware of the costs per square meter in their offices, manufacturing plants, production areas and so forth.
With every horizontal square metre comes the same amount of vertical space – which is for free! Far too often this space is under utilized. Just imagine the S-P-A-C-E between your worktop and the ceiling…………….

Please be patient and bear with me with my “Germ-isch”! 10 years ago I hardly spoke English. THANKS

  1. It sounds like South Africa has a whole lot of SPACE they can put to good use and that we need some educating on how to achieve it!

  2. Dear Lisa,
    congratulations on your first blog post!
    I salute you for tackling the issue of educating the South African market about the utilization of the vertical space. As an Austrian I too know this one all too well – I still can’t get used to having NO top kitchen cupboards in many places…

    Your expertise is undeniable and your passion speaks through everything you do, I’m wishing you all the wildest success you can imagine 🙂

  3. Congratulations on your first blog. I commend you for writing a blog despite your reluctance due to your “Germ-ish”. Well done. I wish you much success in your business and future blogging.
