The project concept is drawn from the traditional Isukha circumcision story, symbolizing the translation from the old to the new. In it are aspects of the old retained and the new embraced to create a hybrid composition.The project site is an ecologically sensitive one, boarded by the Kakamega forest and the Koromatangi river. The design approach therefore aims to protect and integrate the ecosystem, incorporating sustainable aspects of solar energy and rainwater harvesting.
