Oppie Koppie Creche or "Children's Garden on the Hill"

German students collaborate with a community in the Western Cape of South Africa to build a creche - offering its youngest a place of learning and belonging.


The students used local labour and materials - and even fruit packing crates for the construction of the centre.


This is a project which shows what can come of a collaborative process, benefiting both students (who take home invaluable new skills) and local communities.

For more on the students' process see the site Design Develop Build.
Also see this months issue of Domus 949 July, 2011 for a full article on the building's design.
