The Monreve development is a small student accommodation development in the heart of the University of Pretoria community, walking distance from all major amenities. It consists of 14 student apartments and the goal was to design apartments that were beautiful yet functional. It is an early example of Pietman’s style. Though small and compact the spaces are light and airy with a feeling spaciousness. The varied textures of face brick, plastered walls and chrome balustrades combined with quasi-industrial features all combine to offer efficient and aesthetic lock-up and go living for the discerned student.
