OS is an international NGO that builds villages for orphan children, including schools and health facilities. Their regional training centre for East Africa is in Nairobi, and our task was to provide a number of residential units for children, visiting families and conference attendees.

To generate continuity, we designed the expansion – including dining room, kitchen and meeting rooms — to possess the look and feel of the existing buildings.

We also needed these new structures to be minimalistic, providing low maintenance yet high quality. In addition, the new training centre features environmentally-friendly elements throughout.
