Phase 1 of the new facility for Kulen Outreach School. The design is based on the local stilt house vernacular and uses #BriseSoleil walls to help with cross ventilation and cooling of internal spaces. Class rooms are set around an internal courtyard and kitchen garden.
The building is orientated from east to west to protect from unwanted solar gain and the roof overhangs the walls and central courtyard in places to provide external shading spaces for study and play.
The ground floor is given over to classrooms, learning spaces, dining area and kitchen. The first floor provides study rooms and lodging areas for students.
