EVOLUTIVE EARTH DORM
Design Team: Montagne architecture (Nicolas Rondet / Pierre Teisseire), architects (France)
The project has two main objectives:
- Propose a frugal architecture, adapted to the context and simple to implement, for minimum cost.
- Design adaptable spaces of great quality anticipating the boarders’ needs.
A dormitory is a key program for an open school. Including dorms to a school’s program helps attract geographically distant students, an outreach program promoting better access to education.
The dormitories can accommodate up to one hundred students. To meet budget we developed a simple design using traditional and easy to build construction techniques. We decided on a 4 phase construction solution. This allows spreading the cost of construction, thus better accompanying the school’s evolution.
• Foundations and concrete slab
• 3 dorm units (24 beds)
•1/4 of the roof
•1/4 of the patio
The foundations are built from the beginning. The roof is divided into quarters and the dormitories are built by 8 bed units. We suggest building 3 dormitory units (24 beds) and ¼ of the roof in Phase 1. It is then possible to enjoy the entire floor as well as a large portion of the roof allowing innovative and non-binding temporary uses of the space.
• 12 dorm units (96 beds)
• 2 sanitary facilities
• The entire roof
• 1 patio
After all four phases, the building consists of 14 structurally autonomous elements of two categories: the dormitories and the bathrooms (showers and dry toilets). The large roof brings much needed refreshing shade protecting the occupants and the mud walls from the downpours during the rainy season. The dorms are turned inward in order to catch the fresh air from the inner courtyard. A large covered area spans from the dorms to the patio, an undefined living area, to be appropriated by the boarders to study, play games, rest… as they see fit.
