Orphanage

The orphanage had to be very low cost made, but functional to house 30-40 children, the construction material were concrete blocks and H beams. Security fence had to be assigned to entire perimeter and was custom design to appear warm and comforting and not like a prison. The orphanage has Sleeping rooms for the children and nuns including the reverend, it also has Showers, laundry, cafeteria, food storage, commons area, garden, a grotto, a chapel and a praying area. The terrain is not evenly laid out therefore there is a split level in the first floor. The sun in the design is done in a way where the suns position does not hit directly on the areas with the largest voids such as the entrance areas.
