The education center and orphanage located in Bangkok, Thailand aims to serve the community of an under privileged country. There is a social connection block between the education center and orphanage that contains a theatre area, cafeteria and leisure spaces which are open for public. The design uses local materials such as wood, bamboo and brick combined with passive cooling methods and open areas to adjust the hot and humid climate. The rectangular separate block design concept and high sloped roofs are the reflection of traditional Thai architecture with a blend of modern retouches. Education center offers vocational workshops and education for young people. The orphanage serves for 15+ teenagers with social spaces, study areas, rooms and own dining hall.
