Orkidstudio won a competitive bid to undertake a full overhaul of
standardised secondary school design for UK non-profit, PEAS, with a
focus on frugal design and ease of repetition across both Uganda and Zambia with
versions submitted for both contextual requirements.
The design process focused on maximising functionality and use of low cost good quality local materials to create classroom spaces which are conducive to optimised learning, taking advantage of ample natural daylight and ventilation.
We are currently supporting PEAS in a Government-level review of minimum standards in Zambia, and in Uganda making plans for the construction of a pilot construction.
Location: Uganda and Zambia
