Solar-powered housing by Louise Braverman accommodates medical staff in an African village

Solar panels provide all the energy required to power this colourful brick dormitory designed by architect Louise Braverman to house medical staff at a rural village in Burundu, Africa. 

The building is constructed of locally produced bricks, interspersed with a mixture of timber cladding and brightly coloured panels.
