Located in Observatory, Cape Town, the Peak Student Accommodation will house 563 students in a new 9 storey building. The development aims to repurpose a site with an existing heritage building to serve the surrounding UCT & CPUT campuses. The existing building ties into the old internally and houses communal areas, gym, study area and opens up with an interior courtyard. Hugging a larger landscaped area, the building creates various safe, inspiring interior and exterior spaces for study, gather and live. Taking inspiration from the existing building facing Main Street, the new addition, even though much higher, interprets the geometry through a contemporary lens to create a unique addition to the area.
