The project is the upgrading and extension of an existing primary school in Zambia. Ten years after they were originally built by local Government, the modest classroom blocks stood derelict. With a minimal budget, using local materials in innovative ways, BuildX Studio worked to create a colourful, dignified and healthy community school and staff housing.
The final school features three classroom blocks framing a central courtyard within the compound, as well as a small library. To the North of the site, flanking the access road, is a staff housing block and a solar-assisted compost toilet block. The Primary School was commissioned by the Zambia Ministry of Education in early 2018.
