The project is located in the heart of Braamfontein opposite the WITS main campus and will ultimately house 899 students over 13 storeys. The facebrick building consists of a variety of unit types each with private bathroom and kitchen. The existing heritage building will house the unique common spaces such as study centre, lounge areas, games room and gym. Connection to the outdoors is paramount and this is provided through ground floor courtyards, a multi purpose sports field and an entertainment zone on the roof level. The intention of the design is to create an environment in which a student community can develop and thrive.
