REFUGEE SCHOOL
MAE SOTTHAILAND

School for Burmese Refugees

The brief required a school that could easily be dismantled and re-erected at alternative sites. Affordability was also a key issue. Our concept revolved around the use of re-conditioned shipping containers combined with local forest materials of bamboo and thatch. Indigenous tribal patterns added a rich layer of colour and identity. The use of the school by the community as a whole was a critical component of our design.
