This learning academy and residential facility for unemployed youth was born from an unused public facility in the mountains outside Ceres in the Western Cape. The project transforms a fragmented complex into an eco-friendly settlement through working with old buildings, creating new buildings and integrating the space in-between to create unique experiential qualities. Simple construction methods were used to introduce ecological building concepts to trainees.
