Estudio Damgo - Week 17 and 18
This is the last push to finish the Dungga Daycare building for the ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, March 25. Fifth year thesis students, Rick and Von, have been working over time to ensure they will graduate on Sunday, going as far as sleeping over night on site. They will remember this experience for a life time and the knowledge gained during this design/build program will have a profound impact as they enter the professional world.

This interior view shows the folding doors, designed and detailed by fourth year student, Cheyenne. The doors turned out beautifully. They are delightful to see when closed yet easy to open for viewing out towards the surrounding lush valley.
Fifth year student, Rick, gazes over at the newly installed light fixture designed, detailed, and fabricated by fourth year student, Al. The daycare has a total of three interior lights in the main space, one light in the CR, and two exterior lights. The electric lights will rarely be used during operating hours because the building has been designed to allow daylight and the majority of the time the building will not be occupied past sunset.
Interior shelving installed using simple angle bracket supports.
