The Danish studio Native Narrative designed this elevated pavilion where children and adolescents – the 4–17 age group – can play and study after school hours. Located in Mas-in Village, in the Philippine island of Leyte, the 9x7-meter facility is a reading space – with two lavatories – that can serve as a shelter during emergencies.

The plywood furniture was made by local carpenters, and the seat covers of pandan (fiber from the leaves of the local pandanus tree), by native weavers.
