Ghana School

After a visit to her homeland, the client of this educational project was inspired to start a school for children, providing a safe place for children and teachers to inspire, learn, and teach one another. This elementary school concept provides dorm rooms adjacent to the school for some children, teachers and their families. The buildings create courtyards and gardens for the opportunity to learn in a variety of environments. The structures themselves mostly provide shade and multi levels to promote air ventilation and movement. Younger kids classrooms have gentle curved spaces to evoke a feeling of security and protection. The school setting in its entirety creates a village in itself, safe for children to learn and teachers to teach.
