Thai Orphanage Library

The task for the architecture students from Trondheim, Norway was this: build a library for an orphanage in a village in Thailand using natural materials to fit in with the surrounding environment,  with room for books, a computer, and 42 students of different ages.

Sami Rintala of Rintala Eggertsson Architects led the project, which resulted in a structure that is simple, elegant, practical and versatile. The library was constructed with natural lava stone from the site, plus concrete bricks, wood and bamboo, with natural ventilation and sunshades incorporated into the design.
