Village Health Works Staff Housing
Kigutu, Burundi
Merging architecture and landscape, the design of the 18 bed Staff Housing for Village Health Works in Kigutu, Burundi is a romance between east African elemental aesthetics and inventive off-the-grid sustainability. Cutting a skewed line in the terrain, the 6,000 square foot dormitory is sited to capture the breathtaking mountain views. The porosity of the porches encourages sociability, enhances air flow, and frames magnificent unobstructed transverse views of the landscape beyond.
