A learning space is formed through four vaulted structures, each creating a separate classroom. The individual classrooms lead onto a shared veranda, shaded by a woven palm leaf overhang, creating shelter from both the sun and tropical rain downpour.
The Nubian vaults are constructed from compressed earth blocks, and are raised from the ground plane on packed stone walls, to allow for storm water to easily drain away. Rainwater runs along the sloped woven palm leaf roof towards a series of clay pots, collecting and storing this essential resource for later use. The sloped roof also channels wind over the vaulted structures, ventilating the classrooms as the warm air rises through an opening which separates each vault in two.
The 25m2 classrooms allow for a flexible learning space, not only creating a shelter against the elements, but takes advantage of these natural forces to improve the comfort and functionality of the space.
