One Heart Village is a project that aims to establish a permanent, safe home for up to 250 vulnerable girls in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The village is zoned across the 20 acre (81,000m2) site into housing, education, health, community, sport, play and farming. These zones allow the built form and identity of the village to feel contextual in its location, to engage with the community and to feel part of the local culture.
