Designing Kuunga Mkono a profound  understanding of the needs of the patients recovering at S4A Children's Hospital. These children are living with physical limitations, depleted energy, side effects from medication, bacterial infections, compromised immune systems, etc. We learned how difficult it is for students to learn while they are sick. We wanted the school to have natural light, an energetic and calming vibe, and to be an empowering experience for everyone. 

Create a friendly, innovative, and comfortable environment for the kids to learn in.  We aim to combine functionality and architectural spirit.

Visiting the Interior Design School of Hong Kong helped us understand what environment we wanted the children to have. The design helped us visualise the space.

Using images of people helped us understand the need for space and functional design elements. The classrooms are used for both the students' education and workshops for their families.
