Project Summary

TunaHAKI integrated theater and orphanage

The concept behind the TunaHAKI integrated theater and orphanage is both ordinary and spectacular. It connects an orphanage to a public theater – a private compound with a festive gathering place.

As a communal focal point, orphans can better integrate into the life of the village; the concept also facilitates the sharing of construction and operational costs.
