Malahlela Creche, 3 classrooms for 30 children
The completed design highlights accessibility, and provides a generous shaded outdoor space for teaching and playing.

The creche includes kitchen facilities, administrative areas, two classrooms as well as an outdoor teaching area. The design is intentionally compact and uses inexpensive, locally available materials.
