MangoTree is a construction project in northern Kenya on the Lamu archipelago. It consists of new school grounds with space for children to play and explore, providing girls and boys regardless of religion with a safe and appropriate learning environment. The primary school for 360 students includes two school wings with 14 classrooms, a library, an arts center and
sanitary facilities as well as an office and entrance building, a kitchen and dining hall, a basketball court, a food garden, and a chicken coop. The design combines local culture and low-tech solutions with modern approaches to natural light, structural concepts, and sustainable resource management. Spacious classrooms and outside areas favor active, play-based learning.
