MERISHAW ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPT
Located in Isinya - Kajiado County, Merishaw School borrows heavily from the Maa homestead - the Manyatta - in planning and layout of spaces, to provide the 1,200 boys a second home, away from home. The student is placed at the center of the school's most priced asset and is surrounded by layers of protection. The tuition block, science block, and dormitories - areas within which student life rotates - are placed centrally within the scheme with ancillary structures around to buffer off these spaces from outside influences.
Space in the 3 dimensions is highly priced and students have been provided with as much to ensure they are constantly on the move - as the pastoral community hosting the school - and do not find school life monotonous. Space allows for imagination and provides room for creativity. It creates buffers between activities within and without, ensuring sources of disturbance are kept away from the core of the institution. Activities in the students' daily lives are distant to allow room for a transition from one mindset to the next.
Merishaw school imparts knowledge on sustainability through the deliberate design of spaces to ensure natural lighting and ventilation during daytime hours - no activity is to be carried out under artificial lighting during daytime hours, save for the auditorium where theme and task lighting are required. Rainwater harvesting and storage within a reservoir, solar power generation and use through a grid-tied system, wastewater recycling for irrigation, cleaning and re-flushing of toilets, as well as the use of vegetation to create a microclimate within the school are some of the ways Merishaw teaches the boys lessons on sustainability
