Athlone Waste water treatment works

The Blower House complex at Cape Towns Waste Water Treatment Works is situated directly opposite the old Athlone Power Station. SALT Architects material choice of rough brown face-brick and concrete details, as well as the abundant vertical elements on the facade as well as throughout the interior spaces are a nod to the relic over the road. The project is the start of a decade long upgrade at the water treatment facility and includes the Blower House building, which houses a control room for the facility, offices, laboratory and a board room, and an Electrical building housing a generator and transformer.
