Oranje Meisieskool,

Main Entrance Gate House

Bloemfontein

2013

Oranje Meisieskool needed a new gatehouse at the main gate of the school. This gate is manned throughout the day for security purposes, but due to its prominent setting at the entrance, it also needed to have some presence and identity. Rendered concrete and red facebrick were used to fit in with the existing. The step in the roofline allows an old Karee tree to remain standing guard next to the gatehouse.
