Shepherds Ground Community Hall


Design a community gathering space. Based on GBA proposal: Commercial kitchen off to one side to be used for catering and also value adding purposes (needs to have access close to round road) Composting toilet block, rainwater tanks, solar


Fit 150 people

Can close off into sections for different purposes like workshops, dinners, meeting groups. Openings potentially big so easy flow of people from different directions to and from.

Can be staged in build. First roof and floor then fill it in walls, windows, doors

Affordable and using similar build materials to the rest of the village. Can be build with a good component of community labour (e.g. hemp masonry walls etc.)

Open to common/lawns and sitting area where people can sit and watch a concert potentially (which faces west and is exposed to winds)

Solar passive, pleasant southern summer winds

Access easy for all
