The surgical facility built by the Kliment Halsband Architects in uganda is a great example for how a self sustaining building can be designed and implemented in a short time. Many modern architectural concepts are combined with the traditional building methods to realise this health facility. The facility is built upon red clay which was dug up from sites near the building and fired to create bricks. The red bricks are laid out in a fashion to form perforated screen walls that allow for natural ventilation. The main attraction in the facility is the canopy formed by the large number of solar panels fitted in the steel frames above the building. A hybrid battery storage system and onsite generator helps to supplement the intermittent power available through the electricity grid. Even if the mains power fails, the surgical Facility can run off energy stored from the solar panels for two days.This architectural model is a great inspiration for many architectural aspirants.


Imagination, creativity, a keen visual perspective and the ability to conceptualize and understand spatial relationships should be given for any good architect and here at SDSNata, one of the top NATA coaching centres in Trivandrum, Nagercoil, Marthandam and Kanyakumari we ensure to instill these skills in each and every one of our students.
