Design It Shelter Competition
Designed by Marta Balcerzak From: Nicosia, Cyprus Shelter location: Nigeria Date Accepted: August 26, 2009 The shelter is made of local wood: mahogany. The roof is made of recycled me tal. The sleeping and learning spaces are separated. The design arises from considering the environmental conditions such as, topography, temperature, winds. The area where the shelter is located is swampy which is reflected in the foundation design. In order to protect from insects, blue mosquito nets are inserted on the walls (although butterflies are welcome).
