An orphanage, school and public library in Kathmandu, Nepal













The Lali Gurans orphanage and library addresses the needs of an under-served rural population. In a context lacking basic infrastructure, the new facility utilizes low-technology renewable energy and material resources, local craftsmanship, and vertical gardens for insulation and food, thus significantly reducing operating costs.
The project also addresses the needs of the nearby communities by offering a library accessible to the public and a seismically stable refuge area during earthquakes.
