In designing the new buildings for the UNISA campus in Parow, Cape Town, MSa Michele Sandilands Architects chose to use Corobrik’s de Hoop Red 50mm pavers on both the floors and the walls. “The different applications certainly show how versatile the de Hoop Red paver can be!” said Corobrik’s Peter Kidger. UNISA Parow has seen a steady increase in student numbers and, according to project architect Russ Wingfield of MSa (Michele Sandilands Architects), the brief called for additional teaching accommodation, an administration wing and associated facilities. As part of an architect-led initiative, the creation of a responsible building within the criteria of a changing climate became a priority and the vision was to achieve (in principle) a Green Star rating for the new north and south blocks.
