The aim of the architecture of the Yennenga progress clinic in Nakamtenga is to create a modern and functional, but yet traditional and adapted building in a human scale. Local material, as the Laterite stone creates both local jobs and a homegrown atmosphere. The different wards are oriented in buildings around a number of courtyards, a larger for education, gatherings and social activities and a couple of smaller enclosures for more privacy. Free standing rows of frames carrying a pitched roof creates well needed shaded arcades around the whole clinic. When the clinic grows the modular structure of the laterite buildings and the free standing roofs can easily be expanded in all directions. Read more here.
