In order to combat a lack of accommodations for students at the Mae Tao Clinic Training Center in Mae Sot, the embassy of Luxembourg in Bangkok commissioned the a.gor.a architects to design temporary, eco-friendly dormitories.
The architects constructed four buildings almost entirely out of recycled timber from previously demolished buildings while the exterior and interior walls are lined with bamboo. What these materials lack in durability they make up with constant availability; the design is easy to assemble and maintain.
Each building holds approximately 25 people in total. Overall, the architects have come up with an environmentally friendly, space and cost-efficient design that is super helpful, as the site receives a constant influx of refugees and immigrants from conflict taking place in Myanmar. If you're into helping the environment, check out these sustainably designed dorms.
