Longlisted - Dezeen Awards 2023
Center for Handy Skills has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2023. This project is an adaptable center for education aimed at hands-on learning of skills on a natural touristic island. Educational activities happen on the ground level while training facilitators are accommodated on the first level. Adaptability towards change is attained by creating spaces that are non-dependent on structure, isolation layers, utilities and access. A concrete structure that supports prefab concrete slabs bears the weights while a scaffolding structure supports a canopy that protects units from precipitation and creates independent access to each unit.
