Louwville High School
2016

Louwville High School demonstrates how a regionally grounded design response (from concept to spatial orientation and formal expression) can create an architecturally relevant experience whilst working within the limits of a constrained budget. Our concept for this school is closely linked to its context: we see it as a series of orthogonal buildings, interspersed with interesting shapes which create interest and points of reference. Conceptually, these points of interest represent the boulders that are often found dotting the West-coast landscape.

Altena Primary School
2020

The design concept of the new school is closely linked to the low-scale grain of the single-residential context and aims to bring down the visual scale of the school. The ordered building plan and movement paths are efficient, simple and easy to understand, interspersed with colourful panels, super graphics, concrete elements and a fragmented roof-scape that add playfulness and hierarchy.

 

The school and staff have flourished in their new building, putting their own mark down and making it their own.

Somerset College New ESTEAM Centre
2019

The scheme was designed by a London based firm Walters & Cohen, and 2AD Space ran the project meticulously on site. The ESTEAM Centre is a contemporary response to the local Cape Dutch architecture: verandas, white walls and dark-grey pitched roofs. This is wine country, and we have given users generous views of their beautiful surroundings. The white walls with shadows from the vines are poetic and elegant.

 

Given the modest budget, there is nothing fanciful about the building and everything has a purpose. 

Somerset College New Outdoor Learning Space
2020

The Outdoor Learning Space (OLS) is a multi-purpose, flexible outdoor space for the Preparatory School at Somerset College. Inserted into an underused courtyard, the OLS offers shade and tiered seating while still allowing natural airflow and ventilation. It forms a hybrid classroom and play-space that ensures that learners stay connected to the world outside, and particularly aware of the changing seasons.

Rhenish Girls' High School New Swimming Pool
2021

2AD Space was approached by Rhenish Girls’ High School, the oldest female school in South Africa, to help with various projects on the school grounds and to develop a Masterplan and future vision. The Masterplan consists of creating a holistic learning environment that is safe and appealing for the girls to study, play and grow in. The concept of the whole child is at the core of their ideals and we are designing various new buildings and renovations to accommodate their vision. 

The swimming pool was implemented with a limited budget, but with dreams of future expansion. 2AD Space have therefore designed a phased building with larger foundations on the dressing rooms building to carry future greater loads of an indoor swimming pool structure. The addition of the larger foundations allow the modest swimming pool building to be transformed at a later stage, into the full brief of extensive accommodation requirements.
