Lilongwe Recreational Centre For Street Kids

I wanted to design a Recreational centre for street children to respond to the current rise in the number of children living in the streets of Lilongwe, Malawi.

I decided to design a new building using Vemacular Architecture. The centre consists of multiple domes, all different sizes. This recreational centre will be almost like confronting people with the lost art.

Visual 1 shows the different roof heights of the individual domes of the centre.

Visual 2 shows the communal lounge and dining area for everyone to come together as a family.

Visual 3 shows the residential dome corridor, showing the curves of the rooms, the bamboo walls and staircase to upper floor.
