One of the dark sides of the war it’s the orphans. Orphans and children deprived of parental care require the construction of specialized centers living, education, development, and social adaptation of such children. This project proposes the concept of orphanage for 150 school-age children (6-18 years old), on a plot of 0.6 hectares. The number of storeys should not exceed 3 floors.
The basis for the formation of the center is the living module. Long-term coexistence in one space of a large number of children forms their division into social groups – by age, sex, character traits. Living modules are designed to provide accommodation in such groups.
Тhe peluculiarity of this concept is the possibility to expand such a complex (while providing the appropriate area of the site) be completing additional residential blocks (on the north or south side), this increasing the capacity of such center.
The organization of the territory is provided in such a way that the building is located closer to the street, and the courtyard with areas for various activities – in its backside. There is also a car park on the territory (along the street), an entrance area, a farm area. The orphanage provides only accommodation for orphans. Their education will take place in local educational institutions.
The blocks are designed in such a way as to ensure the best insolation of all living rooms. On each floor there are hotel-type living rooms for temporary (or permanent) residence tutors. On the ground floor there are also auxiliary rooms – entrance group, dining room with kitchen, medical unit, administration office, technical and keeping rooms, etc. On the first floor there is a universal hall for joint events.
The living module consists of: hallway, lounge area (with kitchen zone), living rooms (double and triple), toilets and showers.
The living modules are of different capacities – six-, nine-, twelve- and fourteen-bed are grouped into three living blocks, which are connected by alleyway with common recreational spaces.
