CLG Training Institute

Aim of the masterplan for the Chalimbana Local Government Training Institute is to increase the quality of life of both students and academic staff of the Institute, to structure the campus for the long term and to provide the grounds with a clear, recognizable identity. The main orientation of all buildings on campus is strictly East-West, with the main façades (North & South) avoiding the low angles of the sun. The existing road provides access to the campus by car. Simultaneously, a new main route for pedestrian connections is established as the new 'heart' of the campus. It runs between the mostly residential area on the North and the educational program on the South side of the grounds. These two clusters - housing and education - at the two opposite ends of the campus are surrounded by the lecturers' houses, and by leisure activities. By closing off some of the student housing blocks, small neighbourhoods are created, with inner gardens and courtyards providing atmospheric living quarters.
