Camps Bay High School Phase 2

Cape Town

New Classrooms & Laboratories 

completed 2018

Following the completion of the Cultural Centre and the additional classrooms, the school approached us again to look at reallocation of spaces, which lead to the design of additional classrooms and new laboratories.


The original school circulation was built as a a figure of 6, which resulted in some epic journeys throughout the school day for some pupils. The new addition completed the interrupted circulation loop and access to the upper level classrooms resorted to effortless flow for all the users.

There were many constraints in this project - all the levels were predetermined, the available footprint was limited, roof heights were fixed and strict budget control was expected.

The completed classrooms fit seamlessly into the existing building fabric. We would go as far as to say that the design intervention was needed to complete the building.

"Renovating a building is a process of letting go all the things that no longer serve the space. Release the limitations. Just let go of the old energy and let the building breathe anew."
