About This Project

Brief: The site chosen is located centrally between a number of schools in the Sunnyside area, catering to multiple schools simultaneously. It is located next to Nelson Mandela Drive in close proximity to Esselen Street, a bustling commercial street. Therefore, bus and taxi routes pass directly past the site. Pedestrians would enter on the eastern portion of the site from Gerard Moerdyk street.

Adjacent to the site are: A crèche, Art college and the Breytenbach theatre, with the Apies River flowing perpendicular to the west edge of the site. The brief became about responding to multiple scenarios and site specific conditions in the form of multiple schools, communities, races and activities around the site.
