CAUKIN Studio has built a school classroom, library and teacher's office after a cyclone caused devastation to the previous academic buildings in Vanuatu.
The building was constructed in eight weeks. It combines a heavy-duty timber frame, woven bamboo cladding, polycarbonate roofing and metal roofing sheets that create a strong, bright and well-ventilated learning environment.
The library space innovatively tackles the extreme humidity, through carefully considered passive design strategies, enabling the lifespan of the books within to be prolonged.
