Highgate Apartments

 

NOTABLE FEATURES / COMMENTS
Located in the working class area of Maitland, Cape Town’s Northern suburbs, the Highgate is an apartment block consisting of 15 units over 3 floors. Each floor has one studio apartment and four two-bedroom apartments. Designed to be built using only modular components and precast concrete slabs, in keeping with budget constraints, while still maintaining quality spatial and indoor-outdoor relationships, as well as making the most of the view opportunities of Table Mountain and Lions Head.Contrasting colours, balconies, roof overhangs, and the fire escapes on the South side of the building were used to enliven the facades. The result has attracted much positive feedback from residents in the area.
