It is a small group home for orphaned children. We worked to create a warm environment where girls could live on the second floor and boys on the first floor. Dispelling the image of a “cold facility”, we were strongly conscious of the image of a wooden house that fosters the original landscape of the children. We hope that children will be able to have fun and get together as a family, and enjoy a daily meal, specifically in the main spacious hall.
