In addition to the education center, a dormitory was part of the contract with BGET for the Grace Garden project. Since it was also planned in adobe, we had to leave it through the rainy season before starting this second phase.
The dormitory is made for a flexible use, housing from one to a dozen students for a varying amount of time. Adjustment to the landscape and focus on natural airflow are keystones behind the plans. Both through design and placement, the dormitory is connected to the education center, creating a common inner garden towards north for educational and recreational use.
Adobe stones, produced on site and dried in the sun.
