Due to an increased enrollment into its program, The Buddhanimit Temple in Thailand decided to expand with a budget-friendly school dormitory. For the project, the educational institution taps into architects Skarn Chaiyawat, Rina Shindo and Witee Wisuthumporn who take into consideration the financial and spatial limitations.
Upon inspection of the site, the professionals concluded that they can repurpose an abandoned classroom and turn it into a functional dormitory for novice monks. Moreover, this approach to the budget-friendly school extension enables the institution to set aside the savings for additional library and washroom facilities.
With a cost-friendly mindset and construction methods that embrace sustainability, the architects arrange reinforced concrete beams, columns, double-layered masonry walls and a tiled roof to create the budget-friendly school extension.
