PROJECT SUMMARY

Adaptive Re-Use

Women’s center and playground

Reviving the historic center of a village of 1,600 people, the project responds to isolation and limited resources. Two abandoned buildings will be adapted for reuse as working spaces with an eco-kitchen, followed by the rehabilitation of surrounding spaces.

The new facilities will include interactive educational playgrounds for children, winter and summer seating areas, and a protected bird habitat – combining design, planning, restoration, landscaping, and infrastructure.
