HOW OUR FACILITY IS DIFFERENT

Fieldworks Design Group has developed a strategy focused on completely redesigning existing physical spaces to house multiple, overlapping functions necessary for innovative teaching and learning.

Our school space converted a disused shoe factory into a beautiful school facility that supports our learning methodology of creativity, inquiry, resourcefulness, and play. Most of our children walk to school – providing access to schooling within the community that we serve.

The unique design methodology employed focused on up-cycling and other innovative ways to reduce waste and build green. In 2017, we were became the first-ever African school to achieve a 4 Star Green Star rating.

Check out this lovely piece from Earthworks Magazine to learn more about the methods used to design and build our school.

 

Innovative and daring approaches need to be explored in order to achieve a sustainable way forward for education in our country, and at Fieldworks we have made it our personal mission to help realize this dream.
