Jeppe Drinking Fountaink

Jeppe High School for Boys. Kensington. Johannesburg. South Africa

Project Type: Education

Client: Class of 1998 and Jeppe School High School for Boys
Program: Education
Status: Design Proposal
Value: N / A
Area: N / A

At the 20 year reunion, the class of ‘98 decided to give back to the school. On engagement with the school, a drinking fountain near the existing Payne Hall was required. In collaboration, we designed a contemporary concrete structure with a custom laser cut steel detail on the front. The contemporary aesthetic was chosen to contrast the significant heritage factor of the existing buildings thereby creating a dialogue between new and old, steering away from a pastiche copy of the existing architecture. Concrete, as the main material, was chosen for its strength and robust nature as well as its ability to be replicated and/or extended with the use of a mould. Standing the test of time, ease of construction and very little maintenance required, we hope to win over the strict guidelines that the schools rightly implement.
