Rustenberg Girls High School

Rondebosch, Cape Town

We were tasked with a limited budget and the challenge to marry the existing school building with the new Maths and Science building designed by Rennie Scurr Adendorff Architects. Subtle level changes provide breakaway spaces within a busy thoroughfare. Lawn and decking provide respite from the hard-paved areas and boldly structured seating walls and planting beds offer visual dynamism and energy in this rectilinear courtyard. Large bay windows offer views towards table mountain and visually seam the interior with the exterior.
