The Lynedoch Community Centre

Lynedoch, Stellenbosch


The relocation of the Spier Wine Estate farm workers school in the Western Cape presented an opportunity for the conception of an educational facility and eco-village. The team recycled an existing farm shed into a new school using a significant proportion of recycled material. The site has food gardens, recycles water, generates wind and solar energy and contains a constructed wetland, restoring indigenous vegetation and features of the landscape.
