A collection of buildings comprising Chapel, dormitories, kitchen, dining hall and seminar rooms where simple architectural form is embellished with rich pattern-making, and unexpected ensemble, reflecting a sense of its natural setting. Many of the rich pallette of materials are used in natural form - red granite aggregate in exposed concrete, laminated timber beams, copper as roof cladding, demonstrating a high standard of craftsmanship and skill.
The project received the Institute of South African Architects Award of Merit in 1967.
It is now the University of Pretoria Law Clinic, Hammanskraal Branch
