Evergreen School
by CAUKIN Studio

Working in partnership with the charity Mothers Of Africa (MoA) CAUKIN spent 3 months in rural Zambia constructing 4 classrooms and a teacher's office for Evergreen School.

Evergreen classrooms had around 150 students per class. The addition of 4 classrooms brings class sizes down to 40 pupils each.

With unemployment rates in Zambia being so high, it was important that this project also became a vehicle to teach workers new skills increasing their opportunity for future employment.

The design takes from the local vernacular, using materials all sourced within 2 hours of the site and wraps around the existing classrooms to create a large central courtyard within the school.

Each block of two classrooms is offset to create a layered facade adding interest and breaking up the masses.
