Peninsula Drums

Peninsula Drums

Extension of existing office block for Peninsula Drums factory in Philippi, Cape Town. The design intention was to create a building that enhances the connection to the factory space and that adds floor area in order to satisfy the needs of a growing business.

The new building ties into the existing factory’s steel structure extending its grid but following its rhythm. The new building is clad with roof sheeting in order to fit in its industrial environment. Most of the new windows face North and benefit from a sunscreen system that allows sunlight to penetrate during Winter and blocks it completely during Summer.

The internal layout follows the office planning principles developed in 4 Dorp St project completed previously.
