  • HKA | Umbrella

    UMBRELLA - COOL SCHOOL "An open umbrella is a beautiful enclosed sky.” Xavier Forneret ​ School is the most important socialization environment for children; it is not only a place of education, but also a space of connections , multifunctional platform. For younger, it is not only important to go to school for lessons, so we go to meet friends, have fun, learn the great values such as Love, Peace, freedom; we go to thrive, to blossom out. ​ “Child" feeds the desire to overcome, to break the ingenuity, but this is only possible in an appropriate setting. ​ Well-being, more than a fact is a sensation which depends on the individual concerned. This can be created from the surrounding, from the school for children. To satisfy these needs we decide to produce a unique and responsive framework for sensations expressed by users of the future school. We must combine at the same time visual, recreation, education, and enjoyment in one design that responds to local climatic requirements and climate issues on a global scale. ​ The idea of a transparent umbrella-shaped structure comes from its first use: protection against rain, the weather. We must protect children while allowing them to observe nature, the landscape, the environment, while ensuring a comfortable during extreme climate. The exterior wooden frame makes the feel of a space that is both closed and open: it is like “you are locked out.” ​ Primary school is both an open building with transparent materials, but also structurally closed cause of a need for protection against the extreme conditions. The symbiosis between the natural environment and the users is integrated by the use of wood as a material that is attractive, sustainable and robust to ensure efficient operation of the facility of use. ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Competition Building Trust international Hermann Kamte N/A Khovd, Mongolia 2015 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS

  • HKA | Traditional Spline School

    TRADITIONAL SPLINE SCHOOL Located in the northeast of the country, more than 1000 km of Niamey, Fachi in the Agadez Region consists of 2,000 inhabitants and doesn’t have any school. ​ T.S. School is a proposal to contribute to local development with the aim to create educational facility, but multifunctional building such as community places or meeting. With environmental, social and sustainable approach, the project is inspired by traditional African architecture: the Case of Africa. Free, curved form, allows integration school into desert environment. Local materials such as straw, clay, earth, and wood are mainly used. ​ School’s thermal comfort is procured by creating the freshness in this environment. Installation of NEEM trees around buildings and plants under these trees generate a local micro climate. ​ ​The NEEM provides shade and retains cool air created by plants under. So, the flow of prevailing winds brings them indoor the structure and generates fresh air. Trees also help to face the wind and very violent sandstorm. ​ The principle of Musgum Case (northern Cameroon) to create a natural temperature difference with a voluntary exchange of heat between hot air and cold air inside the Structure was applied. ​ Wooden bearing structure and light polycarbonate filter help to diffuse natural light, retain rain water and dust particles. Straw envelope above the polycarbonate is used to filter the sunlight; it is solar screen. Clay is principally used. The project will create a space for reflection, sharing and exchange. Children interact with the area whether it’s; studying, running, walking, leaning or sitting, playing… helping to inspire. ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Competition KYM Field Schools Hermann Kamte N/A Fachi, Niger 2015 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS
