Wesbank Primary School
Kuilsrivier, Western Cape

CS STUDIO ARCHITECTS: Architect

Date:1999-2000
Type:School
Status:Extant

Wesbank is a RDP housing area that was created in 1995 to alleviate backyard shacks from communities all over Cape Town. It is therefore a totally new community with people from all walks of life. Residents reported constant gang activity while the crime rate statistics was the highest in the Western Cape. It is against this background that a brief was formulated to design a new primary school for 1120 children. In all the public meetings, the safety and security of the children was noted as a priority.
