design proposal, February 2011

Kwa Kalusya Primary School, Lukenya is situated approximately 15km from the main Mombasa Road in an arid and sparsely populated area. The school, which caters for around 180 pupils, currently occupies a small corner of a 6 acre plot where abandoned farm buildings are being used for classrooms alongside 4 new, but incomplete, government sponsored classrooms.

We were engaged as part of a continuing project at Kwa Kalusya. Our aims are to expand and improve the current primary school by completing and reworking the existing structures as appropriate, demolishing condemned structures on the site and building new classrooms, staff and admin facilities, toilets and additional resources for a library and craft / carpentry space. The project is being run and funded by Amara Charitable Trust and will be organised in several phases, starting with the upgrade of existing buildings.
