Eagle School
Oesosole, Indonesia

In a remote coastal village on Indonesia’s southernmost island, the school is organised around an open landscaped square that serves as a playground. As well as classrooms, there is a multipurpose room, kitchen and canteen, teachers’ offices, and toilets. Local materials - palm and coconut timber - are used throughout; the lower walls are built from handmade earth-and-concrete blocks, and the upper walls from local bebak wood screens that permit air to circulate freely. The eight volumes of the school are identical to the traditional houses on Rote Island and feature steep roofs that are thatched with palm and coconut leaves. The traditional concept of gotong-royong or community collaboration was used throughout the design and construction of the village school.
