Build Butterfly House for Children Victims of War

Butterfly House called that because it's shaped like a dragonfly. Facade or side walls and back made of woven bamboo (but not sesek) like most houses in the village of Noh Bo, a small village on the Thai-Burmese border. While the front facade of bamboo structure intact.

This butterfly house planning concept is to create an atmosphere that is able to restore the psychological situation of children victims of war has become a normal physiological situations such as children in general. The answer is, making each room for each group of children. On one side is expected to make the concept of "like having your own home" is to restore their past where they used their own house. While in every unit they are still flocking is the concept of building togetherness and equality among them .. By building units of space in which every child has their own personal space, home and living in an environment that is conducive expected them to interact and play and certainly far ahead they are not experiencing traumatic prolonged by the war. And six-bedroom unit is the answer.

Rumpung roof form allows a path that effective and natural ventilation where these roof forms are also intended to collect rain water during rainy season. So to save the water reserves that can be used to supply water in the dry season, because this area is a barren village.

As a major construction using wood in each connection using bolts that are assembled in place to ensure the accuracy and strength. Most building materials imported by the Karen National Union.

Additionally, for buildings not directly touch the ground (houses on stilts), the butterfly house is supported by 4 tires. This is intended to avoid moisture and bamboo and wood decay caused by ground water kapilarisasi.

Apparently resolve settlement issues can be resolved with a simple and low cost. The most important thing to me is not how to find the cause of the disaster but most importantly how to respond to any disasters that occur
