Cape Town Station Drivers Mess

2015

Makeka Design Lab was appointed, in collaboration (joint venture) with DHK Architects and Jakupa Architects and Urban Designers to design a mess for Cape Town Station.

The central site, adjacent to Cape Town Station, offered an existing raised platform above an existing road, with 360 degree views of the cityscape and Table Mountain. The design proposal physically links Drivers Mess to Cape Town Station and opens up onto the main concourse. Drivers Mess provides facilities for train and bus drivers including administrative offices, boardrooms, ablution facilities and locker rooms, canteen and break areas.
