Naidi Community Hall
by CAUKIN Studio

Through the extended ceiling height, a natural flow of air throughout the building is increased, being released through a “hit-and-miss” timber cladding under the roof eaves. The opening shutters, louvre blades and large panes of glass create a naturally lit space internally.

The structure demonstrates innovative design and cyclone resistance whilst still using only locally sourced materials, thus allowing the project to be replicable by local communities in Fiji.
