The project is located in Muhura on the hill’s ridge line. Following the church, the school and the hospital, the project should be able to establish a new idea of community. The program conceives essential services as stationery, pharmacy, bread oven, polyvalent room, with the special cathartic power of a relational space where exchange of experiences is allowed and advocated. For the fact of being in a vast territory of an endless succession of green hills, it is important to define a place, to circumscribe a space that brings back a human scale and that people can grab, reaching a sense of domesticity and everyday life.
