이번 건축물 디자인은 지역적 특색을 적극적으로 반영한 결과물 입니다.
자연경사지를 따라 건물을 배치합니다. 이 배치에 따라 자연스레 외부 활동을 지원하는 데크가 안정적으로 자리합니다. 건축물의 아이텐티를 구현하는 굴뚝같은 환기타워는 흰개미 군락에서 영감을 받은 것으로, 디자인 측면보다 기능적 측면이 더 중요합니다. 더운공기를 외부 배출시키며 자연스레 내부 온도를 유지시켜주는 쿨링타워 역활을 수행합니다. 외부 마감재 또한 로컬재료를 적용, 지속가능한 건축환경을 완성합니다.
The Startup Lions Campus is an information and communication technologies (ICT) campus, located on the banks of Lake Turkana, Kenya. The project responds to the pressing challenge of youth unemployment faced in the region by offering high-level training and access to international job opportunities, allowing young entrepreneurs to thrive professionally without having to leave their place of origin. The campus will provide 100 new workstations and is the first step in an ambitious vision of spreading ICT networks in remote areas.
The project celebrates the unique morphology and natural beauty of its site. It is built over two levels that follow the natural slope and features extensive roof terraces that offer sweeping views over Lake Turkana. The roof terraces are shaded by creeping vegetation, providing pleasant outdoor meeting spaces and opportunities for the informal exchange of ideas.
The building takes inspiration from the towering mounds built by termite colonies in the region. Tall ventilation towers create a stack effect to naturally cool the main working spaces by extracting warm air upwards, while fresh air is introduced through specially designed low-level openings. This system allows the campus to withstand high temperatures and is especially well suited as it prevents dust from damaging the IT equipment. In addition to their functional role, the towers create a landmark in the surroundings.
The campus is built out of locally sourced quarry stone with a plaster finish. In choosing which materials and construction techniques to use, ecological sustainability, cost, and availability factors were weighed to arrive at the best compromise. Collaboration with the local community was key in this decision-making process, drawing from their experience and expertise.
