Healthcare and Educational Facility- A sustainable design
Central African Republic, Africa
The community comprises of a healthcare facility, cafeteria and pharmacy on the lower level and a learning space inclusive of classrooms, lab and library. Perforated walls have been used in common areas and upper floor for natural ventilation and natural daylight. Local materials such as brick and papyrus reed (ceiling of upper level) were used to reduce cost and bring in diffused daylight to keep temperatures moderate within the building. This will also help in economic feasibility.
