Nepal Prefabricated School Design

“Help our Children See” – Sherpa Tenzing Norgay response to Sr Edmund Hillary when asked how we can help you.

Following the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal 270 of the 350 schools supported by the Australian Himalayan Foundation were destroyed.

TTW and HASSELL combined their creative efforts to develop a light weigh earth quake resistant pre-fabricated system that could be carried on foot into steep and remote areas of the Solu Khumbu region, located at the foot hills of Mount Everest, which are inaccessible by vehicle.
The modular system is designed to deliver the three typical standard government classrooms.

Durian Design Strategy

Clearly, the proposition was not just to retail like other e-commerce players and be another “me too” in the market. With its unique strengths, operational model and customer segments, Durian required an approach that would suit their positioning.

We started with a 4 day intensive workshop with the key stakeholders and addressed several concerns like customer profiles, product proposition, brand positioning, revenue and operational model among others. What emerged out of this exercise was a rock-solid strategy to initiate Durian’s online presence.
