community & architecture

Hygiene is often less valued in a rural context; facilities may be neglected and out of maintenance. Charities and NGO provide vital software programmes to teach children the importance of for better hygiene, but without decent facilities to shape their habit it is not easy for the children to change their way of living.

In KPMG's Fangniucang Hope School, we have redesigned the facilities so that the shower rooms and toilet are united into one architecture. The building will not only tackle the hygiene issues, but also create a sustainable living habit for children to love.
