SOS Children's Village
Amman, Jordan
The village is based on individual houses in which between seven and nine children are taken care of by their foster mother under indirect supervision by the SOS Villages Society. The one-storey houses follow the site's natural contours and a network of paved walkways, stairs and ramps connect the various parts of the village. Informal landscaping and the use of rubble walls enhance the integration of natural and built-up environments. The public facilities, the kindergarten, bakery, supermarket, playgrounds etc., are located on the periphery, to encourage interaction and contact between neighbouring residents and the village community.
