PEAS (Promoting Equality in African Schools) supports children to access quality secondary education. BuildX Studio won a competitive bid to undertake a full overhaul of standardised secondary school design for PEAS in Uganda and Zambia, with a focus on frugal design and ease of repetition.

Our design focuses on maximising functionality and use of low-cost local materials to create classroom spaces which are conducive to learning, taking advantage of natural daylight and ventilation.
