Lyra in Africa and the architect team Hollmén Reuter Sandman are working together on a Girls’ Hostel project for Nyang’oro School, Iringa, Tanzania. Lyra in Africa is providing the funding for the construction of the hostel facilities, whereas Hollmén Reuter Sandman are providing the architectural design.

Sustainable, environmentally and culturally appropriate architecture is vitally important for the success of the Lyra’s hostel project, and it will set a standard in the future projects in the area. It will also have a strong impact on the community by allowing them to engage in the design and construction on the hostel, thus strengthening their economy, social status and vitality.

The first dormitory was finished in October 2018 and the plans for the next ones are under way.
